mime type not associating with gui application

bad. *xdg-* tools are intended for user-space, not system-space (ie, not
to be used in pkg scriptlets).
See here for details,
sections on 'desktop-database', 'mimeinfo', and possibly 'icon-cache'
Thanks Rex! *I did not notice my icons and mime types associations were being set on rpmbuild. *Now I have my application associated with my custom mime-type using scriptlets. *
However, I am not clear on how I am supposed to associate files with my mime-type with a custom icon. **
xdg-icon-resource made it pretty simple to associate an icon with a mimetype, but if I am reading*https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/ScriptletSnippets#Icon_Cache correctly, I need to create an icon for every theme? *Is there a preferred way to just set a custom icon for all themes?
