Description Kjartan Maraas 2005-12-20 12:15:56 EST
Description of problem:
Found an interesting rich text formatted (.rtf) document on the net today and
GNOME suggested I open it in sysprof. I think it would make more sense if OO.o
told the system it could open these :)

The file has mime type application/rtf according to nautilus and OO.o just has
text/rtf in the desktop file.

[kmaraas@localhost ~]$ file Desktop/*.rtf
Desktop/testplanmal.rtf: Rich Text Format data, version 1, Apple Macintosh

Opening it directly from writer worked just fine.
