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.

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)

Chemical MIME

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