PDFs Opening in Gimp after Default Install

I ran into another problem with my Debian install (see previous post). When I click a PDF in Chromium, it opens Gimp! I’m fairly confident that is not what anyone wants.

Because I do not run a fancy desktop environment, there did not appear to be an obvious way to fix this. However, after some research, the following worked:

$ mkdir -p ~/.local/share/application
$ xdg-mime default evince.desktop application/pdf
