Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 508559
defaults.list out of date for openoffice.org 3.1
Last modified: 2009-11-12 21:27:09 EST
Description of problem:
All the defaults.list entries for OpenOffice.org programs have names such as openoffice.org-1.9-calc.desktop, but none of these files exist anymore with Fedora 11's OpenOffice.org, the 1.9 was removed (#486460), the files are now e.g. openoffice.org-calc.desktop, openoffice.org-writer.desktop.
As a result, gnumeric had become the default application for opening Excel .xls files on my system. Abiword had also taken over .doc files.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install openoffice.org-calc and gnumeric
2. Double click a .xls file in nautilus
Gnumeric opens the spreadsheet.
OpenOffice.org calc opens the spreadsheet (it used to on Fedora 10).
I think this is less reproducible, without correct entries in /usr/share/applications/defaults.list, which program ends up the default appears to be undefined.
There are more .desktop files in defaults.list that are not present:
Present files are:
