How to remove konqueror file/folder association


I often play folders of mp3 files with XMMS by selecting the folder
in konqueror then right-clicking and selecting OpenWith then selecting
XMMS. The option to 'remember selection' has always been offered,
so like an idiot I recently accepted.

Now if I click any folder to open it XMMS tries to play it, and it's
driving me mad.

As it's not really a file association I'm not sure where to look.

I'm considering erasing .KDE from /home but I'm worried it may stop
me logging into KDE.

Any advice? (Please)

If you erase .kde from /home/user then the next time you start KDE it will act like the first start after an install. You will have to initailize everything in KDE just like you did when you first installed it.

Thanks, as long as I can login, that'll do!

Don't erase the whole ./kde folder! Only search for ./xmms folder in your home dir. Erasing that shoud be enough. If no, write, and we'll check out the other solution.

If I'm reading the post right, getting rid of .xmms should not fix the problem. That will just get rid of the configuration in xmms, the problem is with how konqueror is configured (it's associated folders with xmms instead of itself)

Getting rid of .kde should do it I think, though I'm not certain but if you haven't toasted the directory yet it should be possible to change it without that I'm not certain. Under the file associations, there's a section saying inode and directories are under that. I think it will have xmms listed as a file association here, which you can remove.

Try this:

Start Konqueror, then: Settings > Configure Konqueror > File Associations > inode > directory

Remove the XMMS entry

Thanks for all the help, I was eager to sort it out, so I erased .KDE
which 'seemed' to break the link (and only took 10 mins to reset settings)
but when I connected my usb mp3 player xmms jumped in again.

I checked inode and directories were 'still' associated with xmms which
is now removed. (the association, not xmms!) Hopefully that's problem
sorted.

Thanks again
