No, I have to disappoint you here. It is not simple anymore. It is
generally considered to be an admin's job.

I wonder why you need the short MIME descriptions. If you think this is
really a priority, you can write an email to the XDG mailing list [1]
trying to advocate the idea of adding short descriptions to MIME types.
Having "PNG image" and "Portable Network Graphics image" could be
useful, after all. If you just want a downstream solution (hint, hint
this is not collaborative/social), you'll have to edit


and run

update-mime-database /usr/share/mime


The icon assignment should work by entering

mkdir -p ~/.icons/gnome/48x48/mimetypes &&
cp <myicon_sized_48x48.png>

Note that in the file name identifying the MIME type "application/ogg",
'/' was replaced by '-' and the image filename was prefixed with

Good luck!
