I noticed something very strange about pcmanfm-qt 0.13.0: Any files created in my desktop directory is seen as a plain text file, regardless of file type.
Even more strange: If file is moved to a different directory, filetype is then correct and continues to be correct if file is moved back to the desktop.
Download a file (for example, an image file) to desktop or create an image file there, for example with this command:
$ import -window root ~/Desktop/test.jpg
Right-click on the file’s icon, choose Properties. It says “MIME type: text/plain” (wrong).
$ mv ~/Desktop/test.jpg ~/test.jpg; mv ~/test.jpg ~/Desktop/test.jpg
Right-click on the file’s icon, choose Properties. Now it is says “MIME type: image/jpeg” (correct).
What gives? I use my desktop directory a lot and would like to find a fix or workaround.
