Is this installating the package from scratch or upgrading from a
previous version?

 And this message comes sometimes at upgrading packages.
 So, the bug may not be caused by this package.

Those fake mimetypes are installed by kdelibs with the file
/usr/share/mime/packages/kde.xml since long time ago. They are kept in
kde4libs.
In a recent version, update-mime-database became verbose about this unknown
types, and that is why you get this error when you update stuff and then
update-mime-database is run.
It is unlikely to be changed.

I've examined relevant specifications and the messages from
update-mime-database are correct -- those are not "known" media types.
Mind you, they're not critical errors, so the impact is minor.

At any rate, if there's a bug, it's within the package providing the
definitions, so I'm reassigning it.


KR,

Filip

I did not reassign this bug because users concerned about this, will look at 
the package providing update-mime-database and will report again :)

I do wonder if reporting about unknown media types should be only shown 
in a verbose option of update-mime-database and not by default.

This should be only shown with the verbose option (an option -q would be ok as
well, tho).

Debian wheezy. Workaround: comment corresponding lines in:
usr/share/mime/packages/kde.xml


The real bug though should be addressed by those responsible for that
file (kde.xml).
I think the related bug is this:

https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=250924

But it says "fixed", while it is not. If you look at the attached file
(DIFF) you see they still use the incorrect specs.

So the real question is: we need to change the specs, or change
kde.xml to conform with it as it is defined today?

Also, adding a "-q" (for quiet) and hide the warning may be helpful,
but it is not a real solution.
