I added some information to this file, and they were added to the
drop-down list:


The file also appears to list entries for files that I've right-clicked,
and added to the open-with list in the file properties.

Some programs add themselves to the list of options, like VLC adds
itself in the appropriate places.  But not all multi-media applications
add themselves to the list.

How did I find the right file?  Changed some preferences, then went
looking for a configuration file that had a very recent modification

[tim at localhost ~]$ uname -r

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.  I
read messages from the public lists.
