Ok, *which* mimetypes? There are mime files in ~/. and in
various ~/.mozilla directories? At least 2 in .mozilla--
one for firefox, one for mozilla. These are named
mimeTypes.rdf. Be nice if firefox considered that thhere
are a few of us old time CLI guys still around!
With mozilla, there are places to type in specs about the
"helper" apps; things such as files suffixed with ".smil"
use realplay. As do several other files. Both realplay
and mplayer can do everything (in theory); I've stuck
thanks, Dan, but I'm still lost.
