Description Jim 2003-05-17 13:39:42 UTC
Description of problem:
After selecting a text file (Document/plain text) from a directory, the
right-click menu fails to execute any applications associated with mime file
type. Furthermore, if the user selects "Other Application" from the menu,
nothing happens.  

However, the right-click menu appears to work for all other types of files
(.doc, .jpg, etc). 

Presently, the only way this newly-installed software will load a text file into
an application is to double-click on the text file to load it into the Nautilus
viewer and then select an application (i.e. gedit) that appears in the side-pane.

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

How reproducible:
Attempt to use feature to work with specified mime-type.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create "Document/plain text" file.
2. Navigate to file using Nautilus and highlight file.
3. Right click and select "gedit" or other application from menu.
Actual results:
Nothing happens.

Expected results:
Gedit or other application will appear with text file loaded for editing.

Additional info:
This problem exists on both 586 and 686 platforms.
