MIME types under gnome?
- Hey folks
Ok, so I'm setting up my machine and want to associate filetypes with
certain applications ...
And I always thought there'd be a tool for this under gnome. And didnt
there used to be a control center, pretty much like the kde one? Seems
to be gone.
Its even mentioned in the documentation on gnome.org. File types and
Programs preferences or so. But I havent been able to locate any
I run gnome 2.6.10 on a kanotix 2005-1 system (which means debian).
Hoping for some ideas.
- maybe you could try right click on the file and choose the 'open with'
tab and add appropriate apps for it. And choose the default one

add stuff to the context menu which isnt all that convenient (in the
same time I might have typed the command to the cmd-line).
Under the 'properties' tab in nautilus I can choose one of these said
programms to be marked with a dot, which I had presumed to make it the
default one, but that didnt do a thing.
Also, in that course there is no appearent way to change the file
description.For example, freemind (*.mm) files are labeled "Troff MM
Input Document". So there is that mime database. And I know where, but I
really see no fun in editing the textfiles by hand.
And again: There *must* be this controlcenter applet; its just not
present on my machine, for whatever reason.
Any debian user running gnome on the list? There must be.
K, nough of my rambling :)
