    can't double click *.ram file in nautilus


    I've been on several different forums and still can't find a solution. When I double click on any file with the *.ram extension in nautilus I get an error pop up saying:

    The filename "filename.ram" indicates that this file is of type "RealAudio document". The contents of the file indicate that the file is of type "plain text document". If you open this file, the file might present a security risk to your system.

    Is there anything I can do stop this error pop up?

    Thanks

    assuming they are not text files, right click on one of them, then select properties, then open with, then select whatever program you want to use for default

    It shows the mime type as "text/plain." So if I right click and select "Open with RealPlayer"
    nautilus will default to opening all text files with realplayer.

    Sounds like a problem with Nautilus's mimetype detection, you might want to report that.
