Description Per Olofsson 2008-05-05 02:50:39 UTC
Since GVFS has replaced GnomeVFS in Gnome 2.22, I think xdg-mime should try to use gvfs-info if it exists before trying gnomevfs-info. The utilities are similar, but the output is a bit different, so it must be parsed differently.

Something like:
gvfs-info -a standard::content-type "$file" | grep 'standard::content-type:' | cut -d' ' -f4

I'm rising the priority because gnome-vfs is now deprecated and this bug has not been fixed.

An ubuntu user also proposes a workaround here:

So, I propose a mixture between both:

gvfs-info "$file" 2> /dev/null | grep standard::content-type |cut -d' ' -f4
