I changed KDE's file association for x-mp3 to open with XMMS by default but it is still opening up with xine, the next down on the list.
The association stays in the list until I log out and then it is gone, but either way it won't open with XMMS. xine and kaffiene always stay and work fine.
I tried removing and re-adding the x-mp3 type but it didn't help. I read on here that some other mime type may have hijacked it but my mpeg3 and x-mpeg3 are empty though they say Netscape Kaffeine Starter Plugin in the description.
This is on my brother's computer running Debian sarge with kernel 2.4.26-1 and KDE 3.2.3. I have the same setup on my own computer and XMMS stays in the file association just fine.
I don't know what to troubleshoot next, any ideas?
summary: change association, won't open in chosen application, log out or reboot and association disappears off the list, repeat.
