It took me a while to figure this, so I'm posting it here in the hope it will be helpful to others.
If you use Linux/GNOME as your development environment you may be annoyed by the fact that .ss files, when opened by gedit, display as just plain text with no syntax highlighting.
To fix this, simply edit ~/.local/share/mime/packages/user-extension-ss.xml to look like the following:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
, restart gedit and you should be good to go!
You should make a page on our tools section - http://doc.silverstripe.com/doku.php?id=tools.
Which Linux / GNOME are you running? I, for one don't have a share/mime dir... I'm running Ubuntu 8.04
Artyom: I'm running Ubuntu 9.04. Make sure you have hidden files shown (note the '.' in .local). Let me know if you're still having troubles (and check the wiki link below, I've been a bit more detailed)

Sorry, false alarm. Not sure why I couldn't find it yesterday... must have been late. (I though i could see ~/.local/share, but had no mime dir in it... )
Worked beautifully. thanks for the tip!
