Description tesfabpel 2015-05-20 11:49:47 UTC
ISO files are sometimes recognized with the text/plain mime type, while the command "file --mime-type file.iso" returns application/x-iso9660-image.
I've tried in ROX Filer, and there it works correctly.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to download an ISO like this: http://heanet.dl.sourceforge.net/project/bodhilinux/3.0.0/bodhi-3.0.0-64.iso
2. Open the folder in Dolphin
3. Open the folder in ROX Filer (or other file managers)

Actual Results:  
Dolphin treats the file as text/plain.
ROX Filer and the file command treat the file as application/x-iso9660-image.

Expected Results:  
Dolphin should treat the file as application/x-iso9660-image.

Other ISOs may work correctly, though.
For example try to download Ubuntu 14.04 LTS ISO.
With it, Dolphin says correctly that is an application/x-iso9660-image file.

Thanks for the bug report! This is a known issue, which is caused by a change in the shared-mime-info package. It is fixed in the latest version of that package as far as I know.
