Well, if anyone else has this problem, I am posting what I did to get it to work (since apparently, no one else has a better solution)
Since my mime was b0rked, I decided to delete the folder ~/.local/share from my PC.
the exact code isATTENTION!!!The above code contains the rm bit of code and should not be run unless you know what you are doing.Code:rm -R ~/.local/share
It is put here for clarity's sake only, if you need to delete the mentioned folder, I advise using nautilus, browsing to your ~/.local and delete the folder share from there.
You've been warned!
