Bug Description

Binary package hint: humanity-icon-theme

Currently in Lucid we have special icons for Microsoft Office files. However, these icons are only used for pre-OOXML files, e.g. *.doc, *.xls, *.ppt and so on. However, the icons are not used for the file types introduced with Microsoft Office 2007: e.g. *.docx, *.xlsx, *.pptx and so on.

The icons should be used for those file types as well.

I'v already fixed this for .docx files [ Bug #527515 ] , are you sure you are getting it for .docx files?
Could you mention the "type" of the file mentioned in the properties for all the icons you are noticing the problem?

Maybe I jumped a bit too quick to a conclusion. I can confirm that it does use the "W" icon for .docx files.
However, the "X" icon is not used for .xlsx files, just as the "P" icon is not used for .pptx and .ppsx files. I'm not sure how the others are.

The MIME-type of the .xlsx file is "application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.spreadsheetml.sheet", the MIME-type of the .pptx file is "application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.presentationml.presentation", the MIME-type of the .ppsx file is "application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.presentationml.slideshow".
