1 Hi,
3 I don't know Gnome but I use some applications, like the
4 mail-client/balsa.
5 It opens suitable applications for given mime types (in attachments).
6 The application invoked is read from
7 /usr/share/applications/mimeinfo.cache .
8 Unfortunately, that file is rebuild after each emerge of a related
9 package.
10 E.g., having reinstalled media-gfx/gimp it places gimp at the front of
11 the list of
12 packages suitable for viewing a postscript file.
13 Currently I am only able to modify
14 /usr/share/applications/mimeinfo.cache by changing
15 the order of coresponding applications.
17 Is there a more elegant (persistent) way?
19 Many thanks for a hint,
20 Helmut.
