Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 188373
Cervisia takes over Nautilus mime type
Last modified: 2008-01-27 21:44:12 EST
Description of problem:
I use GNOME as my default desktop on FC5. Recently I installed kdevelop, which
pulled in kdesdk and hence cervisia. Now all my GNOME launchers that have a
file:// URI open Cervisia. /usr/share/applications/kde/cervisia.desktop
has the line "MimeType=inode/directory", which seems to be doing it. This
doesn't seem to be a desirable thing to have happen during an install...
Cervisia breaks shortcuts in the GNOME panel: Home, Desktop, Connect to Server,
etc. Also, it's not possible to use Run (ALT+F2) and enter any path.
This hack solves the problem:
chmod -x /usr/share/applications/kde/cervisia.desktop
That hack doesn't work for me. I solved it by editing
.local/share/applications/mimeinfo.cache but this doesn't take peramanently.
Properties -> Open With doesn't work (I can't change the selection) and I can't
find another way to do this and make it stick.
Another solution may be specify the default application for the file type in
defaults.list (I haven't tried it):
You mean Nautilus should be registered to always handle inode/directory by
default? That would probably do it.
Thank you for the bug report. However, Fedora Project no longer maintains this
version of the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug
if the problem persists.
