[SOLVED] file association problem

Thu Mar 05, 2009 1:29 pm
I'm under kubuntu 8.10. Since I update my KDE to 4.2.1 some file association changed and I can't put them back the way they were.

As an example : I was using amarok for playing my mp3s and it change to audacity. I went in the file association settings and I change it back to amarok. I clicked on apply and once the update was done the association went back to audacity...???

Weird

[SOLVED] file association problem

Thu Mar 05, 2009 4:03 pm
Kubuntu have made a cock-up of migrating KDE settings from ~/.kde4 to ~/.kde. Some apps still seem to have ~/.kde4 apparently hard-coded in them, while others are using it because $KDEHOME isn't being set. I had problems with this causing my mouse cursor choices to fail to stick.

In a terminal, type
Code: Select all
echo $KDEHOME
and you'll probably get nothing back. If this is the case, edit /etc/profile (as root) and add the following lines
Code: Select all
KDEHOME=~/.kde
export KDEHOME

Then log out of KDE and back in again. I can't guarantee this will fix your particular problem, but it worked for my mouse cursors.

It was the case so i added the variable to the file, I restarted my KDE session and the same problem occur.

I was able to correct the problem. I deleted the wrong entry from the file association setting and add a new one. Everything is working now.

thank for your help.
