Description of problem:
I wanted to open real media files in nautilus. It asked me to associate a 
program. I get to a file association menu. I browse to realplay. Klick ok. And 
try to open. No deal. Do it again but check run in terminal and it remembers 
the program associated with .rm format. Problem is I don't want a terminal 
opening every time I play a file

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download realplayer8
2. click on a *rm file
3. Try and associate the file to realplay with and without checking the run 
terminal check box in file association menu

Actual Results:  Without checking run in terminal no program is associated. 
With run in terminal progam associated with filetype.

Expected Results:  Without checking run in terminal the program should be 
associated with the file type.

I couldn't reproduce this when playing with other apps. But i see all sorts of
problems with realplayer on the beta.

Comment 2 Alexander Larsson 2003-02-19 16:46:32 UTC
Hmmm. It seems realplayer requires LD_ASSUME_KERNEL to run with a NPTL kernel/libc.

I get this problem too, nautilus keeps forgetting the file associations I added.
I edited all the video files (.mpeg, .mpg, .wma, etc.) but it always will forget
them after a few minutes.

I didn't notice this, but I am running 9 as opposed to 8.0.

I believe this is fixes at least in fc3, since the way this is handled
was totally redone.
