About powerpoint files


I've associated .ppt and .PPT files with ooimpress, but when I left click on them in konqueror, it still asks me for the application. (shows me the open with ... dialog box). How do i configure it so that it opens the .ppt file with ooimpress everytime i click on them?

What OS are you on? And what GUI do you use? If you're using Gnome, then there should be a program for file associations...

As for the newsgroup, none that I know of. The url here is
www.linuxquestions.org
As for the association problem... How did you do the association?
In your KDE Control Center is the File Association option, in there
you need to specify which applications to handle to open
specific files. If you have done that, make sure that your
specified application is at the top of the list (move them up with the arrows).

Cool

In Konqueror, go to Settings > Configure Konqueror. Then find File Associations on the left.

Sorry, I don't know the newsgroup address. I'll go .

People these days, they skim every post. Then post an answer that is already explained in the first post. PEOPLE, READ THE POST THROUGHLY!!!

I assume you are directing that at me since I am the only one who responded with a suggestion. They didn't identify how they set file association, nor did they specify what else they've tried. So, starting with the simplest and working out, I replied with some ideas...

Trust me, I read the posts.

Cool

I've done all of the stuff u quoted above. Like i went into konqueror, clicked on file associations, and then clicked on powerpoint files and ooimpress is the first one in that list. but still whenever I try to open the file it asks me the application to open it with. I'm confused!!!...thoroughly..
