Associations in mimeapps.list

Post by Alex from the '90s » Sun May 20, 2018 11:22 pm

I noticed a very interesting and useful feature of Softmaker Office, which manifests itself in writing associations to the ~/.config/mimeapps.list. If I understand correctly, this happens both during installation and update, since in the specified file there are sometimes several associations of the same Softmaker program with a specific format via a semicolon. For example:

Code: Select all

application/msword=textmaker-free18.desktop;textmaker18.desktop;textmaker18.desktop;
Thus, after several updates, the file can significantly increase, which is not critical, but also not desirable.

Confirmed here. I noticed even 4 entries of the same "textmaker-2018.desktop;" string, and also there are 2 entries that are kind of related, I think: "textmaker-2018.desktop;" and "textmaker-18.desktop;". I found them both appear in the file.
