Description Martijn Schmidt 2018-01-05 20:26:53 UTC

KIO-GDrive appears to assign the mime type "application/x-vnd.oasis.opendocument.spreadsheet" to .ods files on line 38 in the following piece of code:


However, the correct mime type is "application/vnd.oasis.opendocument.spreadsheet" and as a result I get Dolphin's Choose Application dialog when I try to open one of the .ods files on my GDrive using the KIO helper. The mime type which I have listed can be found as a FAQ item on the Document Foundation wiki, as well as on Wikipedia:


I have made a local fork of the master branch on GitHub, after adjusting the mime type and re-compiling KIO-GDrive the problem has been resolved: LibreOffice Calc immediately opens the file without Dolphin prompting which application I'd like to use.

Best regards,

PS: the second thing isn't critical at all, but please note that the variable VND_OASIS_OPENDOCUMENT_SPREADSHEED contains a typo, it should actually be spelled as VND_OASIS_OPENDOCUMENT_SPREADSHEET ... if changes are made anyway, we might as well tackle both at the same time. :-)

Thanks for the bug report, and for confirming the issue and a potential fix for it! Would you be able to submit a patch using http://phabricator.kde.org/?

Hello Nate,

I've given it a shot, is this the format you needed to make it work?

FWIW, I added you as a subscriber because you sent me over to Phabricator so I figured you were involved in the project, of course it's no problem to remove yourself if I was mistaken!

Excellent, thanks for the patch! I'm not actually a user of KIO GDrive so I'm afraid I won't be able to help review the patch, but I can help shepherd the patch through the process. Congratulations on your first patch! May it be the first of many more. :)

MIME type correction for .ods files in src/gdrivehelper.cpp

KIO-GDrive appears to assign the mime type "application/x-vnd.oasis.opendocument.spreadsheet"
to .ods files in src/gdrivehelper.cpp.
However, the correct mime type is "application/vnd.oasis.opendocument.spreadsheet".

FIXED-IN: 1.2.2

Test Plan:

1. Try to open a .ods file through an unpatched KIO-GDrive and notice how
   you'll receive a Choose Application prompt from Dolphin.
   This is a result of the fact that "application/x-vnd.oasis.opendocument.spreadsheet" is an unknown MIME type.

2. Repeat the test described in 1 with the patched KIO-GDrive,
   and notice how (for example) LibreOffice Calc immediately opens the file
   without going through Dolphin's Choose Application prompt first.
