Description Franz Fellner 2017-03-06 15:17:43 UTC
It's named "image/x-panasonic-raw2" only in shared-mime-info while programs that can handle the files specify "image/x-panasonic-rw2". This will prevent applications from showing up in the "open with" dialog in every file browser. I tried to open a .rw2 file in dolphin with rawtherapee. I found out that also exiv2, ufraw, libopenraw (and others. Google will find them all) use x-panasonic-rw2.

It's been named that way since 51cbde9068b6528af8b01207c11172b72d78cc35, in November 2010, so I really don't see the point in changing it. Why do those programs make up their own mime-types? Do they ship mime-type definitions instead of using shared-mime-info's? Show me image/x-panasonic-rw2 being used before November 2010, and I'll make image/x-panasonic-rw2 the main mime-type. Otherwise, I'll just add image/x-panasonic-raw2 as an alias for the "correct" (read, oldest), mime-type.

exiv2 uses x-panasonic-rw2 in their wiki since Okt.1 2010: http://dev.exiv2.org/projects/exiv2/wiki/Supported_image_formats/13
