update-mime-database is a program which is responsible for updating the shared mime-info cache according to the system described in the Shared MIME-Info Database specification ⟨http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Specifications/shared-mime-info-spec⟩ from the X Desktop Group.
-h Print out a command summary. -v Print out the version information. -V Be verbose. -n Only update if MIME-DIR/packages/ or a file in that directory is newer than MIME- DIR/version. This is useful for package pre- and post-installation scripts.
