    Sorry for the incomplete question...my question is

    I had added a new extension to mime database take it for example *.edu

    and then i had created a application test.desktop in /usr/share/applications
    specifing the Mimetype=application/edu....but this is not working if i right click the .edu files
    open with test. is not there
    how to map the application to .edu files

    should i restart nautilus?

    and i got the answer for it.....
    there is nothing to do with nautilus
    i have to use the command "update-desktop-database"

    any way thanx for ur reply
