This is a Zero Install feed. To add this program to your Applications menu, choose Zero Install -> Add New Program from the Applications menu. e.g. on Ubuntu:

Adding with GNOME

If you don't see this menu item, install the zeroinstall-injector package from your distribution's repository, or from

Drag the feed's URL to the dialog box that appears. Other environments may use other systems. For example, if you are a ROX desktop user, drag the link to AddApp instead.

Alternatively, to run it from the command-line:

$ 0launch

The 0alias command can be used to create a short-cut to run it again later.

If you don't have the 0launch command, download it from the web-site, which also contains documentation about how the Zero Install system works.

Full name


MIME types are used to identify types of file. For example, a plain text file would have the MIME type 'text/plain'. An HTML page would be 'text/html' and a PNG image's type is 'image/png'. ROX-Filer uses MIME types to decide which application to run when you click on a file, and what icon to give it. ROX now uses the Shared MIME Database to deal with MIME types. Ideally, the shared database will contain most of the types you need, and applications will add their own types to it automatically. However, sometimes you may need to edit the database manually, and MIME-Editor is a graphical editor for this. If a type is missing, consider asking for it to be added to the main database.
