Question Updating one MIME database from another.


Hello there,

I wasn't sure exactly which forum to ask this in, but my basic query is as follows. I have two computers connected via a local network. Computer A has a much more comprehensive MIME database than computer B, so I'd like to update B with all the type definitions from A that it lacks, across my network somehow.

I tried simply copying all the xml files to the /usr/share/mime directory of B that it lacked from the /usr/share/mime directory of A, then running
Code:
update-mime-database /usr/share/mime
on computer B, but this didn't work.

I was wondering if anyone knows the correct way to go about carrying out this procedure?

Thank you for your time.

Sean.

I'd still love an answer to this if anybody out there is able to provide one.
