[Bug 910675] [NEW] [12.04] lubuntu: "open-dialog" is confused when there are different filetypes for the same application


You have been subscribed to a public bug by Michael Basse (michael-alpha-unix):

riqht click on a file is opening a windows with "open, open with, copy,
properties" and so on. if i have 2 *.doc files, i can mark them and then
click right on a file and choose "open" and libreoffice will open both
of the files. But that option is missing when i mark a *.doc and a
*.docx. Both are set to libreoffice as the mime-handler but the menu is
not handling different file-extentions which are opened with the same
application, so there is just the option "open with" instead of open, so
i have to select libreoffice from a list

the same goes for *.png and *.jpg., *.mp3 and *.wav and so on.

So this should be fixed so that me menu is offering "open" when all
selected files are opened with the same program, even when the file-
extension is different
