[Bug 210967] New: Java files have no default application to run with.
  • From: bugzilla_noreply@xxxxxxxxxx

  • Message-id: <bug-210967-21960@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx/>

Summary: Java files have no default application to run with.
Product: openSUSE 10.2
Version: Alpha 5
Platform: Other
OS/Version: Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: Java
AssignedTo: dbornkessel@xxxxxxxxxx
ReportedBy: pnemec@xxxxxxxxxx
QAContact: qa@xxxxxxx

Even though files like .java .jar .jnlp have defined mime type. There is no
default application set to run them (neither in Gnome nor in KDE).
IMHO it would be nice and right to set java files with
java with java
jar with java -jar
jnlp with javaws

AFAIK jar files are configured to be unpacked by default which is IMHO very
wrong, because when user download some program (installer) it will open archive
instead start installing.

P.S. I am not sure if this problem is java-team related or more KDE and GNOME
related, so please reassign if appropriate.
