                  Status:                    None => Cannot Reproduce       


Follow-up Comment #2:

I just installed pspp 1.4.1 on debian 11 via apt and it works. If you install
via the packet manager, then the mime database and the desktop files are
automagically updated. So if I install via apt, then I can do

root@debian:/usr/share/applications# xdg-mime query filetype
root@debian:/usr/share/applications# xdg-mime query filetype

The sps and spv file mime types for pspp are defined here


while for sav and por they are already defined in the freedesktop xdg mime
type database.


The desktop file which is the link between the mime type and the application
should be here:


I guess if you install via "make install", then you need to update the mime
database manually. You also cannot use a different prefix during configure,
because then the xml and desktop files are not installed in the correct
