Gnome 2.8.3 mimetypes vanished

Ok, I'm on slackware 10.1 with the gnome packages from linuce ( Everything's been working perfectly. For those who care, I'm on a P3 666/128MB/20GB/i810.

The only problem that's come up, and this is only recently, is the mimetypes disappeared. For instance a .jpg comes up as type 'program' and .png as 'unknown'. I don't know how to get them back. I'm aware that gnome comes with a mime defining module, but I'm not sure if I should just reinstall that, or not.

Any help would be much appreciated. It's not crippling my system, but it's a pain in the ass to manually open everything. It's even buggered the Help.
