Re: [Evolution] problem with wav attachments, evo 1.4.5 w/connector, mandrake 9.1

Hmmm, so how come other doc types work okay as attachments? e.g. Word
docs give OpenOffice as an option, and pdfs give two.

Oh.  Well, it sounds like it's still true that Gnome MIME settings don't
work in Evolution.  Glad to know there's a local mime_types file.  I
assume you're talking about these ones (RH9):

So how about an example of how would one add an application tie-in so
(as in Bill's question) there's an option to open a WAV file in XMMS? 
Some #comments in the .keys and .mime files would be helpful and help
avoid some "stupid questions".

eh? the "hard-coded" stuff was only to prevent "viewing" attachments in

mime-type string to the list of strings in the
/apps/evolution/mail/mime_types key (or something like that)

For security reasons, Evolution doesn't respect the Gnome MIME settings,
it uses its own hard-coded settings--so you're out of luck.  Hopefully
they too will be editable some day.

WAV files attached to emails aren't being recognized as such. The only
option I'm given for dealing with the attachment is to save it. I've
checked my file types and it looks good, xmms is the specified app, and
browsing to the saved WAV file works correctly, a double-click opens it
in xmms.

Any advice?
