Fix for Easy .img file mimetype

April 23, 2021 — BarryK

Documentation for EasyOS states that you can left-click on an EasyOS .img file, for example 'easy-2.7.1-amd64.img', and it will then open up, and you can then copy out the files 'vmlinuz', 'initrd' and 'easy.sfs'.

However, clicking on the file, nothing happens, as forum member 'williwaw' reported:

...see my replies below.

Yeah, it is the change in /usr/share/mime/packages/ in the 'shared-mime-info' package that is causing the conflict with 'puppy.xml'.

I have modified packages-templates/shared-mime-info to substitute the older from Easy Buster, which doesn't have the conflict.
