[Bug 1485217] Re: Magic for text/x-tex broken


How are you reproducing this? How can I verify the fix?

It seems to me as nautilus recognizes a dummy file correctly as plain
text rather than TeX document; so does the file command.

  Magic for text/x-tex broken

Status in shared-mime-info package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  The magic for text/x-tex in Ubuntu 15.04 is broken as it assigns
  text/x-tex to any text file which contains the word "section",
  "chapter" or "documentclass" within the first 100 characters.

  This behavior is fixed if one adds backslashes to the appropriate
  match values in /usr/share/mime/packages/freedesktop.org.xml (.in)
  (see attached patch).
