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):
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.
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.
