MIME problem with Rox


have recently switched to Linux, using Red Hat 9. I have installed Rox 2.1.3-1, but don't know how to resolve a MIME problem. Before installing Rox, I installed shared-mime-info-0.15-2. However, when I start up Rox, I get the following warning:

"The standard MIME type database (version 0.9 or later) was not found. The filer will probably not show the correct types for different files. You should download and install the 'shared-mime-info-0.9' package from here:
freedesktop.org.
If you have already installed this package, check that the permissions allow the files to be read (check /usr/local/share/mime/globs or /usr/share/mime/globs)."

When I look in the 'globs' file, all it says is:

"# This file was automatically generated by the
# update-mime-database command. DO NOT EDIT!
image/png:.DirIcon"

what does that tell me about permissions?

Although at the moment Rox is mis-identifying all my files, it looks pretty good and I would like to get it sorted out. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks John

to check the permissions open a terminal and type

ls -l /usr/share/mime/globs
