LXDE: add application/gzip to the list of MIME types handled by xarchiver in libfm
Last modified: 2017-03-27 22:40:01 CEST
I found that a gzip compressed file (not a tar.gz one) is not seen as an archive in pcmanfm because the list of MIME types handled by xarchiver in libfm contains application/x-gzip but, in Mageia 5, the MIME type used for gzip compressed files is application/gzip.
The updated packages allow the extraction of a gzip compressed file (other than a tar.gz one, for which there was already no problem) using the context menu (right-click) of pcmanfm.
Updated package in core/updates_testing:
$ potrace --help
potrace 1.14. Transforms bitmaps into vector graphics.
$ potrace bitmap.bmp
[brian@localhost Documents]$ ls -ltr
-rw-rw-r-- 1 brian brian 8885 Mar 4 20:46 bitmap.bmp.odg
-rw-rw-r-- 1 brian brian 2585142 Mar 4 20:47 bitmap.bmp
-rw-r--r-- 1 brian brian 2525 Mar 4 20:49 bitmap.eps
eps file was crated.
I verified it in fact converted the bmp to a vector graphic.

Wrong Link - if someone can delete these thanks
Testing M5_64 using LXDE
Sorry for leaving this so long, especially as it it so easy to test.
BEFORE the update, I gzipped a file which *already had a suffix* to tmp.pcap.gz , and PCMANFM did not recognise it as an archive; i.e. no archive program was offered in the right-click pop-up menu. I did not try a filename.gz file...
Things like .tar.gz or .tar.bz2 were recognised as archives.
AFTER the update, the test file tmp.pcap.gz was *still not* recognised as an archive. However, re-naming it to tmp_pcap.gz , it *was* recognised as an archive. So this update is only effective if the .gz suffix *has no previous suffix*.
Back to Nicolas, please.
Another point: this update is labelled 'enhancement'and is flagged as having an advisory uploaded. In fact when I last checked that, it was not there in SVN. I only know about 'security' & 'bugfix' for updates which require advisories. If 'enhancement' is valid, something might need changing in QA procedures. OTOH if enhancement is valid, does it need an advisory?
