Description Juha Tuomala 2008-08-04 12:14:11 EDT
Description of problem:
Clicking a page with rpm packages sends rpm mime type


over http. Currently f9 suggests 'Archive Manager' to 
handle that file format which is wrong.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
always before you change your personal preferences.

Expected results:
launch the default fedora pkg tool, whatever that in this 
release happens to be...sigh.

Any movement on this issue?
Comment 2 Kevin Kofler 2008-09-25 23:44:48 EDT
KDE 4 uses the shared-mime-info data. This is probably an issue in either shared-mime-info or gnome-packagekit.
Comment 3 Bastien Nocera 2008-09-27 08:17:12 EDT
$ grep application/x-rpm /usr/share/applications/*

PackageKit is already the GNOME default for RPM files. Get KDE to use the defaults.list file, or change whatever they use to select the default applications. Not a shared-mime-info or PackageKit problem.
Comment 4 Rex Dieter 2008-09-27 08:32:14 EDT
kde uses it's own (mostly empty atm) defaults.list, reassigning -> kde-settings
Comment 5 Steven M. Parrish 2009-02-06 10:41:31 EST
Comment 6 Rex Dieter 2009-02-06 10:57:05 EST
Ick, looks like defaults.list hacking doesn't work on kde4 (seems we need to add a mimeapps.list)

Another parallel approach would be to add (something like):
to kpackagekit.desktop

And alternatively removing x-rpm mimetype from ark.desktop
Comment 7 Rex Dieter 2009-02-06 11:29:41 EST
kpackagekit-0.4.2-0.2.20090128svn.fc11 built with InitialPreference
and added mimeapps.list to kde-settings upstream svn.

I'll let these simmer a bit, and then backport these mods to F-9/F-10 too, adding as kde42 blocker.
Comment 8 Kevin Kofler 2009-02-09 13:34:55 EST
This is fixed in the iteration of the KDE 4.2 testing updates which hit testing the day before yesterday, tracking as such and removing from blocker.
