Am I missing a file? I re-installed everything in the computer about a
week ago, should have been complete from scratch. I always start with a
USB live spin and then add the extras that I want, mostly with yum,
"mostly from yum" might be the problem. Did you install Parole from yum?
during the configuration effort ...
[bobg@box9 ~]$ xdg-mime default vlc.desktop `xdg-mime query filetype
xdg-mime: file '/path/to/file.mov' does not exist
You need to substitute the actual filename of the .mov file.
xdg-mime: mimetype argument missing
Try 'xdg-mime --help' for more information.
[bobg@box9 ~]$ cat xdg-mime
cat: xdg-mime: No such file or directory
That's never going to work unless you happen to be in the directory
where the xdg-mime command lives (and if it's an executable then catting
it to the screen is pointless and may screw up your terminal modes). Try
'type xdg-mime'. Besides, you've already demonstrated that you have the
command because it gave you an error message.
