Upon installation, Lifeograph is not registering properly its MIME type / file type with the OS.
If diary is unencrypted it's MIME type is recognized as "plain text document". For encrypted diaries it's MIME type is recognized correctly as ".diary document"

They don't ship MIME settings for the .diary type, so xdg-mime has no idea what these files are.

It appears that it has the right stuff, but is 100% designed to be run and installed by a user (rather than with packaging).

cmake/xdg.cmake is a script to setup up the mimetype for the user, but it'll never be included in the package that way.

I looked at the included MIME file and it didn't even set a file extension..sooo

I don't know much about mime (nor do I want to), but that should do it

$ cat lifeograph.xml 
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<mime-info xmlns=''>
  <mime-type type="application/x-lifeographdiary">
    <comment>Lifeograph diary</comment>
    <comment xml:lang="tr">Lifeograph günlüğü</comment>
    <magic priority="100">
      <match type="string" offset="0" value="LIFEOGRAPHDB\n"/>
    <glob pattern="*.diary"/>
