Description Peter Åstrand 2013-11-20 10:03:32 UTC
We are registering a mime type association when are are installing our
application by these lines in the package postinstall script:

$ xdg-desktop-menu install /opt/thinlinc/lib/tlclient/thinlinc-client.desktop
$ xdg-mime install /opt/thinlinc/lib/tlclient/thinlinc-client-mime.xml

Same thing but "uninstall" when the package is removed. Unfortunately,
after removing the package, the type is still to be found:

$ xdg-mime query default application/vnd.cendio.thinlinc.clientconf

This is because xdg-desktop-menu adds stuff to
/usr/local/share/applications/defaults.list, but never removes anything.
