possibly a dup of 212764, does "update-mime-database /usr/share/mime" as root
fix it?

I tried the suggested workaround, but this did not helped. What is the best
preocedure to ensure that the files in $USER $HOME are also updated or which ones
to manually remove in $HOME to test ensure further

Comment 6 Alexander Larsson 2006-11-09 09:44:05 UTC
I'm not sure what you mean.

Alex, I mean that what files in a users home directory I should also remove or
update to ensure that the system wide configuration is in effect and is working
fine, e.g: 

./.local/share/mime
./.local/share/mime/mime.cache
./.local/share/applications/mimeinfo.cache


Comment 8 Alexander Larsson 2006-11-10 08:52:20 UTC
Ah, removing everying in .local/share/mime (or temporarily moving it) should be
enough.

Comment 9 Per Uddén 2006-11-13 14:55:21 UTC
I have problem with ooo documents default action mime type.
Nutilus update correctly when icon isn't selected.
When it's selected the mime type change to application/x-java-archive
and default action doesn't work.

Comment 10 Kevin Verma 2006-11-28 21:17:59 UTC
I had been migarating my office setup from RHEL4 to FC6 on a newly assigned
system and this issue reprodued. I tried above discuessed workarouds and
"update-mime-database /usr/share/mime" helped. 

But I realized that the issue effected all users system wide, even one of the
users data was moved on to this new setup from another FC6, 

where this issue re-produced after installing google-earth, I believe this to be
"NotABug"

Comment 11 Alexander Larsson 2006-11-29 09:03:27 UTC
Are you saying you believe google-earth caused this problem?

Alex,

Sorry for a late response, yes I believe google-earth caused this issue, however
I could not deliberatly re-repoduce this issue again yet.
