I've had very few problems with 5.9 Standard. Its fast, stable and does just about everything I need. Very nice indeed.
I have just hit one strange problem. I installed Mplayer (mainly to keep the browser plugins happy). Yesterday I tried to use it on a move file that Xine couldn't handle. Mplayer failed as well, but the really odd thing is that now, it seems that all default associations point to Mplayer. It looks as though something has messed up the mime information for Thunar very badly. Earlier, I doubled-clicked on an HTML file in Thunar, which promptly started Mplayer. Looking through various other files, all the ones I've checked are now showin Mplayer as the default, even though none of them are multimedia files.
Is there an easy way to fix the Thunar mime settings? If nothing else, I'd like to see if this is reproducible, or just a one off glitch.
