Re: MIME type not supported

Look in ~/.local/share/applications/mimeapps.list and see if there's a line starting "inode". If there is, delete it. If there isn't, come back and tell us.

Re: MIME type not supported


thanks, David.it works.
here's the result:

[Added Associations]
application / x-compressed-tar = gpk-install-file.desktop;
application / x-extension-gnome-IconPackager = nautilus-folder-handler.desktop;
inode / directory = gpk-install-file.desktop;
application / x-bzip-compressed-tar = gpk-install-file.desktop;
application / x-sms-rom = fedora-wine.desktop;
application / zip = gpk-install-file.desktop;
application / octet-stream = fedora-wine.desktop;

Hello again:

after solved the conflict with the "MIME type" at the opening of folders from local directory with the help of David (thanks again),... it appears again.
Now I'm trying to install a plugin for xmms visualization player (analog vu-meter-plugin1.0.0) and get the same error message:

"MIME type not supported / home / RUI / Area Trabalho/analog-vu-meter-plugin-1.0.0.tar.gz"

how can I solve this problem and if anyone can or wants, what happens with "MIME type"? my knowledge of linux are not that many ...
thanks again
