Thanks Tomeu to lead me to the /home/olpc/.local directory. However, the
mimetypes.xml is not necessary to get the icon in the journal. I just
had to copy the scratch icon file in the activity directory to
"application-x-scratch-project.svg" (also in the scratch activity
dirctory). The Memorize Activity is a good example for using that feature.
Sugar has to be restarted after installing Scratch to show the icon.

John, could you please make the following changes in the next Scratch
version:
- add the line "mime_types = application/x-scratch-project" to the
activity.info file
- copy the scratch icon to "application-x-scratch-project.svg" in the
activity directory

Etoys gets configured by different packages. e.g. the rpm
etoys-3.0.2153-1.noarch is adding the file
/usr/share/mime/packges/etoys.xml and the rpm 
sugar-artwork-0.82.3-1.olpc3 is
adding the file
/usr/share/icons/sugar/scalable/mimetypes/application-x-squake-project.svg.

Regards,
Philipp
