Comment 1 David Zeuthen 2005-04-14 16:56:37 EDT
So I got this all wrong, sorry. The bug is:

 The the desktop file redhat-presentations.desktop, as referenced in 
 shared-mime-info as the default for .ppt files should be in

The problem is that .ppt files can't be openened from Nautilus
Comment 2 Ray Strode [halfline] 2005-04-14 17:29:40 EDT
Hi, so there are actually two ways to fix this:

1) add application/vnd.ms-powerpoint to the MimeType= line of impress.desktop
2) create a symlink from
${_datadir}/applications in the %install section of the openoffice spec file
(and run update-desktop-database in %post and %postun).

1) is the upstream fix, 2) isn't a good idea because redhat-menus is probably
going away soon.

Comment 3 Caolan McNamara 2005-04-18 05:48:19 EDT
1 is the right fix, and will be in place as soon as gcc works again for OOo.
Upstreamed as ooo#47641#
