I am creating debian packaging for a couple molecular viewers
and am puzzled at what is really required for associating a file
type under gnome 1.4 with a particular program. Using nautilus
as my filemanager I find that I have to have the following files
for a .pdb file to properly lauch the molmol application...
description=Protein DataBank Format
and molmol.mime containing
However while the above will cause the mime-type to appear in the
File Types and Programs control panel it doesn't cause an association
of an application unless I also add to /usr/share/application-registry
Is this correct? The documentation on presetting these files seems
sparse and the existing use of it seems rather random in format.
Also will this usage work under gnome 2.0 when released? Thanks in
advance for any hints. Oh, please email to howarth bromo med uc edu
as I don't subscribe to this mailing list.
