Basic information

  • TDE version: master
  • Distribution: N/A
  • Hardware: N/A

Description

“fonts/package” MIME type is used in tdefontinst, but such MIME type is invalid.

Steps to reproduce

  1. install tdebase
  2. do update-desktop-database
  3. Error in file “/usr/pkg/share/applications/tde/kfontview.desktop”: “fonts/package” is an invalid MIME type (“fonts” is an unregistered media type)

FYI

KDE4 replaced “fonts/packae” with “application/vnd.kde.fontspackage” https://svn.reviewboard.kde.org/r/6111/ Should we rename to “application/vnd.tde.fontspackage”?

Problem is confirmed. Anyhow there is a file “/opt/trinity/share/mimelnk/fonts/package.desktop” from “tdebase/kcontrol/tdefontinst/tdeio/package.desktop” which defines a mimetype “MimeType=fonts/package”. So the error message seems a bit weird.
A solution may be to rename to “application/vnd.tde.fontspackage” as suggested, if it helps to clean the error.

Yes, I also agree with renaming. I looked at the mentioned KDE reviewboard and it seems that we need to find all the occurrences that may depend on the mime name and rename everything.

I have done the renaming as we discussed, so this issue will be closed.
Nevertheless, I have tried opening a .fonts.tar.gz package in tdefontcview and it seems the font viewer does not support compressed font packages (at least the one I have tried). The question so is whether it is correct to associated the font package mimetype to the tdefontviewer desktop files. Note the error would have been there before as well.
Note that tdefontviewer works fine if I first uncompress the package.
