Package: lxde
Version: 0.5.0-4
Severity: normal

When I click to open a file either on the Desktop, or in pcmanfm, all that 
happens is that I'm being asked "What application do you want to use to open 
this file: OpenDocument-text" (this is my free translation from Danish). 
The problem is with all kind of files I have tried, pdf, odt, ods, odp, doc...

Kde4 is also installed on the machine, and there it's no problem.

I'm looking at deploying this to a few thousand users, and this is a showstopper.
