i'm having trouble opening attachments from sylpheed, i.e. they don't "Open". i can "Open With..." and specify the application name which successfully opens the document in that application. what am i missing?

ps: i don't use any desktop environment! i startx i3.
i posted in this sub-forum, as i'm unsure this fits any other sub-forum. please feel free to move this thread.

I don't use sylpheed but can help "How Sylpheed handles attachments"?

thank you fedeliallalinea. i don't seem to have this problem in debian or arch. i didn't need to manipulate any mime files.

just had a look: app-misc/mime-types is installed, but app-misc/run-mailcap is not installed. i wonder if the latter is needed?

Code:
$ eix mailcap
* app-misc/run-mailcap
     Available versions:  3.39_p1 ~3.52_p1
     Homepage:            http://packages.debian.org/unstable/net/mime-support
     Description:         Execute programs via entries in the mailcap file


Code:
$ sudo emerge app-misc/run-mailcap

These are the packages that would be merged, in reverse order:

Calculating dependencies... done!

emerge: there are no ebuilds to satisfy "app-misc/run-mailcap".

emerge: searching for similar names...
emerge: Maybe you meant any of these: app-misc/mtail, app-misc/rlwrap, app-misc/crunch?
