Hi Steffen,

as per .pdb format version 2.3, all records must start with a HEADER

page 13.

The chemical-mime-data package provides a mime entry for the PDB format
that seems to be very comprehensive as it also takes into account broken
files that start with other fields.

I have no experience in cristallography. Daniel, do you know if this is
necessary ?

Maybe rasmol (and pymol, and others) should suggest chemical-mime-data?
I do not think that it can recommend it because of bug 420795. Shall I
file wishlist bugs or should we try to push a text/x-pdb alternative in
shared-mime-database ?

When this is decided, I will file a wishlist bug against rasmol for its
.desktop file to mention the chosen mime types.

Have a nice day,
