Also, the official DICOM MIME type is application/dicom, not image/dicom.

the file src/aeskulap.desktop does not conform to the latest FreeDesktop specification:

- The 'Encoding' field is deprecated.
- The use of 'Application' in the 'Category' field is deprecated.

In Debian, we removed the Encoding field, and changed the category to 'Viewer;MedicalSoftware;Graphics;'.

You can see the patch we use in our SubVersion repository:
