I have jaunty and a problem with file associations:  In Dolphin and 
Konqeror a jar file is reconized as zip file and opened with apps like 
Ark. But in the file associtions dialog there is the right (default) 
assosiation to a JRE. See this in 

It clear that a jar file is a zip file but that is not the purpose. A 
odt file is a zip file as well but opened with OpenOffice.org. It seems 
that the Unix tool file seems to recognize this...

I have also tested this with another user with the same problem.

Do you have an idea?

TIA  Martin
