KDE Bindings


It's late so I'll keep it to one question...

Where does KDE keep the global bindings (which application will open each file type)?

BTW it's Slack 10.0 and KDE 3.3...

TIA!

Its in ~/.kde/share/config/profilerc for the local settings or ~kdefolder/share/config/profilerc .
Am also assuming that you know how to make the changes for the file associations (bindings) from Konqueror->Settings->Configure KOnqueror->File Associations
Hope that helps

Thanks for the help... I do know how to change the File associations, but for some reason they do not take. I change the default app for MPEG files from noatum (ignore spelling) to xine and as soon as I close KDE and restart it, it goes back to noatum. Same thing with other apps.

You pointed to my user settings what about the defaults for the system?

I did put the system setting folder also.. anyhow.. you need to first find out where your KDE has been installed. In my case its in /usr (some might have it in /usr/local or /opt) .
Look for a share/apps/config folder in there. Thats the location for Global config files. There should be profilerc there. I think you are looking for that.

Regarding your problem of noatun becoming the default application even after trying to change it, something tells me that it might be that you dont have write rights to that file (which is strange.. everything in your home folder should be writable). Still do check it out by changing it through a text editor. Still make sure you have a backup, editing any of the config can cause it to become useless.
