Description Jef Spaleta 2005-03-07 23:51:03 EST
Description of problem:
New default file format for oowriter (odt) doesn't seem to have a file
association. As a result nautilus doesn't see oowriter as a default
canditate to open odt files in oowriter.  I'm hazy on how all this
mime crap actually works so this might not be the right place to file.
I see application/vnd.oasis.opendocument.text in the writer.desktop
file so I'm assuming that entry is suppose to do the deed and
associate writer to odt files.

Please instruct me on anything I need to specifically check on my
rawhide install.

I haven't checked the other oo apps yet with regard to whether the new
opendocument fileformats are being associated correctly in gnome. I
would assume they are also affected.

This is also upstream bug 


I've created a patch and added it there too. This patch will appear in
shared-mime-info-0.15-11 in Rawhide.

Btw, another bug is that Nautilus doesn't display the right icon - I believe
that is a bug with the OO.o 1.9 desktop file.
Comment 4 David Zeuthen 2005-03-09 12:24:31 EST
Actually, wrt what I said in comment 3, what needs to be done is teaching
gnome-icon-theme about the icons for the new mime types, e.g. there needs to be
gnome-mime-application-vnd.oasis.opendocument.text.png files and so forth.

I suggest opening a bug against gnome-icon-theme to fix this.
