Description Ed McKenzie 2001-07-15 12:53:59 EDT
Red Hat's GNOME desktop has never shipped with associations for word
processing documents.  I think this is a bug, since the shipped KDE
packages install KWord (which IMO is much less mature than AbiWord.)  I
don't know where mime-type info is stored in GNOME these days, but
gnome-vfs sounds like as good a guess as any.

Including AbiWord in the default install was filed as bug 49142.
Comment 1 Toralf 2001-08-28 03:35:29 EDT
I think the problem is that /usr/share/mime-info/gnome-vfs.keys lists "abiword"
in shortlist for application/x-abiword, application/msword, while Red Hat
abiword package installs binary as "AbiWord" - gnome-vfs doesn't seem to
understand that these are the same app. (I think it should still pick up
"open=AbiWord" from abiword.keys, but it seems like it doesn't.)

To fix, [see attached patch], or install application as "abiword", or fix

Comment 3 Toralf 2001-08-28 04:14:50 EDT
I think what it all boils down to is that you should sync your spec file with
src/pkg/linux/rpm/abisuite.spec-template from AbiWord source tree.
Comment 4 Toralf 2001-08-28 07:50:14 EDT
Another problem here is that the mime-info files are inconsistent; abiword.keys
contains just

	ext: abw

but abiword.keys sets up handlers for text/abiword, not application/x-abiword.

Also, http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=59670, is clearly related to this.
