AFAIK xfce4+Thunar does NOT store a separate list beside the Linux
standard MIME database. MIME-Files are stored in
The "Open With" Menu is shown, when more than 3 applications are
connected via MIME-Database.
Set the default application with xfce4-mime-settings (Xfce4-Settings
Manager -> Mime Type Editor).
For the other entries:
You can show the MIME-Type in Thunar with "View" -> "Configure Columns"
-> "Mime Type", but MIME-Types are quite complex - they have aliases and
subclasses. (see $XDG_DATA_DIRS/mime/, especially
/usr/share/mime/packages/freedesktop.org.xml (e.g. application/rdf+xml
-> application/xml -> text/plain)
(there are some freedesktop.org-specifications for that. )
For me, often the "text/plain"-connections in
~/.local/share/applications go crazy, and these are also shown for
Sorry, not that easy.
Fast solution is indeed: "rm -rf ~/.local/share/applications"
