bash 'type' command and mime-types errors
I recently did something to mess up bash and kde, but unfortunately, I don't know exactly what that was, because I didn't notice at first. Here are the symptoms:
I have a text file called 'todo.txt'. On a command line, in bash:
[confuted@alpha ~]$ type todo.txt
bash: type: todo.txt: not found
I know this command has worked in the past for me. I tried re-emerging bash, but it didn't solve my problem.
I imagine that error is associated in some way with this error:
When I start openoffice (and sometimes other programs. Konqueror has had symptoms), and try to open a document, I get the following orders in sequence:
Could not find mime-type: application/octet-stream
No mime types installed
Malformed URL file:///usr/lib/openoffice/program
Malformed URL file:///home/confuted/
Similar crap pops up when I try to save, and then openoffice crashes. I tried re-emerging openoffice, too, but if that had worked, I wouldn't be posting here.
