View Full Version : [other] lxde/pcmanfm ignores mime associations

yesterday, after updating my karmic, running lxde, most files seemingly lost associations. their icons on the desktop (and directly in pcmanfm) changed to the ones usually used for plaintext, and double-clicking them opens them with gedit, or, in some cases, prompts for me to choose the application (but recommends none). i thought mime types have been messed up, but xdg-mime query shows that the files are properly associated (i.e. xdg-mime query default application/pdf returns xpdf.desktop, application/zip returns xarchiver.desktop etc.). i am at loss. what's the problem? :confused:

the problem persists with up-to-date karmic (again, it does not occur in gnome).
anyone?

apparently this is due to incompatibility between pcmanfm and shared-mime-info. see http://bugs.archlinux.org/task/16760
