How do I disable the gwenview importer device action in kde4?

I just installed kubuntu lucid on my notebook. Every time I plug in a thumb drive, the device actions popup gives me two options - load in file manager and use gwenview importer.

I want to get rid of the gwenview importer option.

I went into System Settings->Advanced->Device Actions and found the entry for Download photos with gwenview. It can't be deleted (at least as a regular user). I tried modifying it and then deleting it, but the gwenview entry was still there afterward.

Any ideas would be appreciated.


kubuntu lucid x86 kde 4.4.5

I logged into KDE and could not find anything helpful.

You might take a look at the KDE forums.

There's one called "Workspace" which might be the appropriate one for this request. It seems to active.
