ROX filer not recognize file types


I use XFCE4 with ROX as my filer but lately, possibly after some -Syu, ROX sees almost all files as text/plain and doesn't display the right icons for them. In ~/Choices I have warning icons about MIME-icons MIME-thumb and Templates links to ~/.config/, where these directories are apparently missing. I re-installed ROX and shared mime but has not helped.

Any ideas please?

My thanks in advance!

Re: ROX filer not recognize file types

I am not sure what file originally sets it, but in order to fix this I created a file called /etc/profile.d/ with this in it:

export XDG_DATA_DIRS="$XDG_DATA_DIRS:/usr/share"

Make sure it is executable, and your shell should start it up. Basically that tells programs where to look for shared data such as pixmaps/icons and mimetype definitions and for some reason was masacred from one of the config files or something. Cheers.
