- Date: Wed, 1 Sep 2004 08:44:06 +0200
I got Gnome 2.6 (Debian/unstable) here and I'm trying to convince Nautilus
to open iso-8859-2 encoded text file (suffix is .srt) with gedit:
0) Nautilus shows 'green foot' common icon for bridge_too_far-cz.srt file
1) I right-click file -> Open with -> Application (the only choice)
2) dialogue "none application associated with "bridge_too_far-cz.srt" is shown,
button 'Cancel' and 'Associate'
3) I press 'Associate', gnome-file-types-properties is run (according to ps command,
it is 'gnome-file-types-properties application/octet-stream bridge_too_far-cz.srt'),
I'm selecting icon, description, MIME type, category, suffixes in in 'Implcit action'
4) again - still the indefinite 'green-foot' icon is shown, right-clicking file ->
Open with -> Application gets me back to step 2), but now form in
gnome-file-types-properties contains previously entered values. Frustration, confusion
- is it a bug or feature? What should I try next?
I'd gladly appreciate link to some explanation or tutorial I could have missed. Also
thanks for any tips or insightful explanations. I take care of multiple Gnome computers
and I just have to explain people why this doesn't work :-(
