mime-type/extension binding for .rpm is wrong
Last modified: 2009-02-19 06:42:39 EST
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):
always before you change your personal preferences.
launch the default fedora pkg tool, whatever that in this
release happens to be...sigh.
Any movement on this issue?
KDE 4 uses the shared-mime-info data. This is probably an issue in either shared-mime-info or gnome-packagekit.
$ 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.
kde uses it's own (mostly empty atm) defaults.list, reassigning -> kde-settings
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):
And alternatively removing x-rpm mimetype from ark.desktop
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.
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.
