Package: fontforge
Version: 0.0.20080429-1
Severity: normal
Tags: patch

The fontforge.desktop file created by Debian is incorrect.  It does
not include the mime-types that fontforge can open.  This means that
Gnome and KDE cannot know to offer FontForge as an option for opening
FontForge's own SFD format, or for TrueType, OpenType or PostScript

The following line needs to be added to the fontforge.desktop file
that Debian includes:


The source package includes it's own fontforge.desktop file in
Packages/fontforge.desktop.  This file includes the mime-types that
Fontforge supports.
