In openoffice.org-writer-2.3.0-6.11.fc8,
/usr/share/applications/openoffice.org-1.9-writer.desktop does not claim the
text/enriched mimetype, although this format is of course supported by the
Comment 1 Caolan McNamara 2008-02-13 05:28:37 EST
Hmm, are you *sure* OOo supports text/enriched ? If so, can you attach a sample
text/enriched demo document. i.e. I'm just trying to ensure that we're talking
about text/enriched (etf) and not the rtf format. 

i.e. http://rfc.dotsrc.org/rfc/rfc1896.html 
vs http://alf.uib.no/eudora/kens/etf.html
Comment 2 Stefan Paletta 2008-02-13 09:37:39 EST
Sorry, you’re right. text/enriched is not rich text format.

However: in F8, KDE only uses text/rtf for *.rtf files and does not know the
application/rtf mime type at all, whereas writer only lists application/rtf.

Changing this bug to reflect this: please have writer claim the text/rtf mime
type. Or: coordinate with the desktop teams to use either application/rtf or
text/rtf everywhere.

KDE 4 will use shared-mime-info, so hopefully the problem will just vanish in 
Fedora 9.
Comment 4 Caolan McNamara 2008-02-13 10:06:46 EST
Yeah, I prefer leaving OOo alone and letting KDE move to shared-mime-info and so
picking up that application/rtf is the preferred mime-type for rtf
