image/svg+xml doesn't open in Browse

Component: Browse Version: Unspecified

Bug Status: New


The SVG mimetype (image/svg+xml) seems to not be registered with Browse. You should be able to open an SVG file in the browser.

All that is needed is to add image/svg+xml to the mime_types list in

Any chance this could be done sooner than later, as it great enhances the save SVG capability of Turtle Art to have a way of viewing SVG files in Sugar.

Please see re making Browse be the default activity for opening SVG.

Hi Walter, what about if imageviewer is the default activity for showing svg's? Would that makes more sense?

comment:4 Changed 14 years ago by walter

Perhaps Imageviewer (which also doesn't seem to know about image/svg-xml) should be the default. But certainly Paint, which changes the format from SVG to PNG should not be the default. And you definitely want to be able to open SVGs in Browse, if only to be able to take advantage of View Source.
