Works for me...Do you have some non-stock file manager installed (to replace

Comment 2 Uno Engborg 2006-03-28 17:08:48 UTC
No, nautilus-2.14.0-1.
The only non gnome stuff I have is alacarte-0.8-7.fc5

I have now and then switched to swedish locale, if that could have had any
impact on this.

Do you see the problem with a fresh user?

What is the output of 
gconftool-2 -R /desktop/gnome/url-handlers

Can you attach the contents of

Comment 7 Ray Strode [halfline] 2006-03-30 04:07:55 UTC
Hi, the entry in mimeinfo.cache that starts with
inode/directory=fedora-kdesvn.desktop looks suspicious.

Does /usr/share/applications/fedora-kdesvn.desktop have 
in it anywhere?  If not, can you add the line to the bottom of the file and then
run update-desktop-database (as root).

Does that fix your problem?  If not, does (temporarily) uninstalling kdesvn fix
your problem?

Comment 8 Uno Engborg 2006-03-31 00:03:36 UTC
Adding OnlyShowIn=KDE and update-desktop-database sort of fixes the problem, in
that I then can open the Desktop folder from the places menu. But the side
effect is off course that I no longer have kdesvn in my Gnome Menu it's not even
there to add back with Alacarte. Shouldn't that be possible?

Comment 9 Ray Strode [halfline] 2006-03-31 00:29:23 UTC

What if you add


to /usr/share/applications/defaults.list

? Do you get to keep your menu entry and things work?

Comment 10 Uno Engborg 2006-03-31 01:24:08 UTC
Yes, that seam to work.

Comment 11 Ray Strode [halfline] 2006-03-31 02:49:11 UTC

Thanks for testing.  Retitling bug report and changing components.
