Description Philippe Cloutier 2006-04-16 21:55:58 UTC
Version:            (using KDE KDE 3.5.2)
Installed from:    Debian testing/unstable Packages
OS:                Linux

#106607 refers to kfile_deb being useless due to MIME types issues and suggests that a new report about that specific issue would be opened. It seems that there is no such report, so I'm opening one. There are 2 MIME types for .deb-s, x-deb (Freedesktop.org's) and x-debian-package. According to David Faure, KDE wants to standardize on x-deb, but kfile_deb still uses x-debian-package, while kfile reports .deb-s as x-deb. I believe that it's a result of this inconsistency that kfile_deb is not used by default and that the trivial change from x-debian-package to x-deb will be sufficient to fix.

SVN commit 530779 by dfaure:

The mimetype is now x-deb  (kdelibs defines both, with x-debian-package being an alias for x-deb)
