Just read at the gnome website about the cross-desktop MIME-type
"As with GNOME 2.6, you must define the XDG_DATA_DIRS environment
variable to the path at which your MIME database is installed, for
Now I thought that things like this need to be handled, and probably
the best would be to do such initial settings in the startup scripts
which are starting X / GNOME.
However I'm not an experienced Linux / GNOME user and have no idea
what else needs to be in such a script. Do I start any of the
daemons, or is it just enough to start the GNOME window manager?
You get the picture, what I'm really looking for is a package with
gnome-start-scripts in the style like the X startup-scripts to enable
the start from the shell (.sh) script and to enable starting from
explorer (.bat) windows shell via double click without ever opening a
Cygwin shell. "Cygwin? What is this good for? Wanna run GNOME!"
