Arrow Where does KDE store the file assocition configuration.


Editing the file associations with kde's default gui is quiet tiresome. Where is the confile file for it actually stored so that I can change the associations the way I want to.


I use KDE 4.3 on KUbunutu 9.10

Try searching in:

Code:
~/.kde/share/config
I think this method will be more tiresome. You have to manually edit a number of files, like for email client you need to edit the file emaildefaults.

Well its a directory. I checked all the files there couldn't find such thing that relates to file associaltions. There are just too many file associations than the number of files there. I think its got to be some file.

Example : associate an application, e.g. 'mousepad' to a text file,
and trace the configuration file ..

grep -R mousepad .local/*

The reply is :
.local/share/applications/mimeapps.list:text/plain=mousepad.desktop;

.....
