Oh, nice :) An updated tutorial :)

While that page contains a lot of useful information, my problem was a little bit too evil O_o

The file "/usr/share/mime/packages/freedesktop.org.xml" on the device, although called "freedesktop.org.xml" is not THE "freedesktop.org.xml" from freedesktop.org which I knew. It's actually just an empty placeholder :(


However, the file manager will detect my test zip file as being "application/zip" (tested by long-clicking on zip file and choosing "Details").

When I click on it, it will give "Unable to open".

btw: where does the file manager get the icon for the file?

Probably something messed up in the desktop file. I wonder...
