Mime Types [Solved]

Post#1 by Blaze » 18 Mar 2011, 12:22

MIME (Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions) is an Internet standard for describes message content types.
MIME messages can contain text, images, audio, video, and other application-specific data.
Official MIME info is provided by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) in the following documents:
  • RFC-822 Standard for ARPA Internet text messages
  • RFC-2045 MIME Part 1: Format of Internet Message Bodies
  • RFC-2046 MIME Part 2: Media Types
  • RFC-2047 MIME Part 3: Header Extensions for Non-ASCII Text
  • RFC-2048 MIME Part 4: Registration Procedures
  • RFC-2049 MIME Part 5: Conformance Criteria and Examples
Different applications support different MIME types.
I have question about it.

What kind of MIME types for files .lzm and .xzm?

For example:

Code: Select all

.gtar -> application/x-gtar
.tar -> application/x-tar
.tgz -> application/x-compressed-tar
.tgz -> application/gnutar
If I'm not mistaken I think that mime type for


Code: Select all


Code: Select all

Am I right?

yes, but you need edit /usr/share/mime/packages/freedesktop.org.xml to get them recognized globally (all desktops/users) by the system.
done in both BETA's for lzm/xzm.

Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.
