Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 838905
*.tar.lzo archives aren't visible in file-roller Open dialog when 'All archives' filter is active
Last modified: 2016-09-19 22:14:53 EDT
Description of problem:
Created *.tar.lzo archive with file-roller and tried to open it by file-roller again, but it's not listed there if there is filter "all archives" (but it definitely should be, it's archive created with the very same file-roller)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. create any *.tar.lzo archive
2. open file-roller, click Open and move to the location, where the archive should be
3. be sure you have set All archives file type filter
*.tar.lzo archive is not shown there
there should be all *.tar.lzo archives besides other archives
This is the same as with *.ar file type (bz838849), there isn't *.ar file listed neither, but this time there is file-roller set as default app for running *.tar.lzo.
Those mimetypes that file-roller claims to support need to be added to /usr/share/mime/packages/freedesktop.org.xml in order for the mime type to have a glob pattern associated.
The mime types I find in file-roller, but not in shared-mime-info are:
Built in Fedora as shared-mime-info-1.0-6.fc18
this is now visible for file-roller, nevertheless, it can't be extracted. Bug filed here: 950515
