I have installed OpenOffice 3.1 downloaded from the openoffice.org
website on CentOS 5.4 x86_64.
The downloaded file is actually an archive containing RPMs.
I did not use their setup tool but installed directly the RPMs I was
interested in via 'yum localinstall' (my idea is in the future to put
them on a custom yum repository, so that they can be managed via
regular yum install / update).
It works fine, except that when I double-click on, say, *.odt files in
the file browser I get the following exception:
Cannot open xxxxxxx.odt
The filename "xxxxxxx.odt" indicates that this file is of type "odt
document". The contents of the file indicate that the file is of type
If I do a right-click, Open with... > Open Office Writer 3.1, it opens
the file properly.
1. Did anybody already experienced that?
2. Do you know where I can manage the file types in GNOME?
I have already added Open Office 3.1 as the default application to
open such files (Right-click, Properties > Open With)
Thanks in advance!
