ROX-Filer rolled back

I have been unable to fix the mime-handling problem in Rox 2.7.1. It insists on displaying a plain text file as 'application/octet-stream', which is a sprocket icon.

I compiled our trusty old version 2.6.1 in Jaunty pup, simply replaced the ROX-Filer executable with the older version, restarted X, and hey prsto, Rox now thinks that plain text files are 'text/plain' and shows the correct icon.

Maybe someone could raise this issue with the Rox developers. For now, I have rolled back.

Barry I fixed that a few days back, I've been working on mime for the package release, you know me and graphics :) Plus a couple of icons need to be set for pet, pup sfs. But I'll try to upload in a couple of hours.

Rox 2.8 package
Hi Barry I made a package with the latest rox and it works out of the box:) Plus I made new mimes for it for sfs, iso, etc, the total icons size compare to the flat black is 12kb smaller extracted, added a newer blinky I themed and
compiled on jpup, built a desktop icon them, and wallpaper, lol what a mix. It can be found at.

Just a note the icons in /root/.config/
have to stay there, but they could be link from that directory and replace the identical ones located in /usr/local/apps/ROX-Filer/ROX/MIME with system links.

Hope that helps
