MIME Types Not Working - Please Help

Post by Kent A. Signorin » Tue, 20 Jun 2000 04:00:00

I'm using Helix Gnome on RedHat 6.2 and I'm having trouble with MIME types.
I am able to use the MIME type changer capplet to change MIME program
associations and it works fine for many formats, including .mp3.

The problem is that when I change the default application for .AVI or .MPG
MIME types, Gnome ALWAYS trys to open up xanim when I double click a .MPG
from the Gnome File Manager.  When I check the MIME type association, it
reflects the change I made (to use xtheater for example) but it still trys
to use xanim.

Does anyone know how to fix this?

Please e-mail me any suggestions you might have.

Thank you,
