Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 174291
Default handler for image/* mimetypes
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:18 EST
Description of problem:
Currently in FC5t1, The GIMP is the default handler for image filetypes. I think
an image viewer would be a more appropriate default (as oppose to an image
editor). This may be related to typos in /usr/share/applications/defaults.list
(the image types are all associated with gtumb.desktop, instead of gthumb.desktop).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Should happen on all FC5t1 gnome desktops after installation (I don't know about
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC5t1
2. Open image
Image opens with The GIMP.
Image opens with an image viewer, such as gThumb.
These bugs are being closed since a large number of updates have been released
after the FC5 test1 and test2 releases. Kindly update your system by running yum
update as root user or try out the third and final test version of FC5 being
released in a short while and verify if the bugs are still present on the system
.Reopen or file new bug reports as appropriate after confirming the presence of
this issue. Thanks
Eye Of Gnome and Gthumb are the defaults (see
/usr/share/applications/defaults.list). Was any of those applications installed
on your machine?
It seems to be fixed now (the original problem was a typo -- must have been
fixed since the test releases of FC5). Closing.
