All you had to do was ask. Goto $KDEDIR/share/applications/ now type ls. You should see some *.desktop files. For example in mine open office calc was labeled oocalc.desktop. Now when I look in the file, I noticed a line saying InitialPreference=2. I left it alone, but I wanted kspread to open up .ods files. So I cd in the kde directory and find kspread.desktop, I added a line that says InitialPreference=3. I then restarted X, and my goal was accomplished.
No, that's not how it works. Please understand you should provide an answer if you can because others may benefit from it and in terms of reciprocity: after all about everything here is provided to you for free asn in "free beer".
Yeah, same here, not mad. I wish LQ had merge-thread or delete-thread options available to the creators of threads so if you later notice someone answers your question you can merge your question in with the other person's original question, or maybe just link yours to the answering thread.
