== SEE ALSO == == Chemical MIME ==

Follwing discussion on the DebianMed mailing list (http://lists.debian.org/debian-med/2008/01/msg00093.html), it has been proposed that:

 * If a chemical/* media type already exists, we will use it.
 * We will not create new chemical/* media types.
 * We will not migrate some types from chemical/* to text/*.
 * If somebody can propose a patch that reduces the size of the warning for using the chemical/* types, we will make our packages recommend [http://packages.debian.org/chemical-mime-data chemical-mime-data], and file wishlist bugs wherever appropriate.

Media types on Debian-Med desktops

Some Debian-Med package associate file suffixes to applications by using the method described in the MimeTypesSupport page of this wiki. This is a bit experimental an unofficial, as there is no support in upstream packages. This page keeps track of the associations.

Eventually it will be better to forward the associations to the FreeDesktop.org shared MIME database, in coordination with upstream.

Suffix

MIME type

Package(s)

.ph

text/x-clustalw-tree

treeviewx, njplot

.phb

text/x-clustalw-tree

treeviewx, njplot

.aln

text/x-clustalw-alignment

seaview, clustalx

.ppr

application/x-perlprimer

perlprimer

Can someone confirm/improve

Suffix

MIME type

Package(s)

.pdb

chemical/x-pdb

rasmol

Until they are submitted to a central MIME database, the .sharedmimeinfo files for each type are duplicated and not automatically synchronised. Please do this by hand if you modify one copy.

Hint: one can determine the MIME type using gnomevfs-info or gnomevfs-info -s (for the slow mode, see http://lists.debian.org/debian-med/2008/01/msg00073.html)
