Description Andrew Zabolotny 2007-02-16 19:50:39 UTC
Description of problem:

The .desktop file provided with kchmviewer is slightly incorrect.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install kchmviewer
2. Open a folder with .chm files
3. Double-click on a chm file
Actual results:

It will tell you it doesn't know how to open the file

Expected results:

The file should be opened with kchmviewer

Additional info:

Actually the .desktop file contains two bugs:

1. "Exec=kchmviewer %U" must be "Exec=kchmviewer %f" as kchmviewer doesn't
understand URLs on command line, so it doesn't know how to open
"file:///some/where/something.chm" (and neither can open several files at once,
so %f not %F).

2. "MimeType=application/x-chm" should be "MimeType=application/chm". This is
the MIME type that Gnome assigns to chm files.

Comment 1 Patrice Dumas 2007-02-17 09:54:01 UTC
In fact application/chm is required for kde mimetypes handling, and
application/x-chm for the freedesktop mimetype handling. So I added both
and corrected the %U. Thanks for the report, should be fixed in 
2.7-2 (in FC-6 and devel).
