Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have no idea what your problem is, but I can offer consolation in that i've been having similar troubles with KDE.
Any theme I apply NEVER changes the taskbar and Kmenu, it is forevor stuck on the plastik theme. I can't even change the fonts in the menu. All the other widgets are nice and themed but my freaking taskbar appears to be stuck on kartoonish plastik for all eternity. GRRRRRRRRRR!!
Similar glitch here. What works for me is to right-click an .mpg file (or whatever), select "properties" and then click on the little spanner icon. This opens a similar dialogue box where you can change your application priority and suchlike, and it actually seems to remember the settings.
Just a guess "in the dark": are your permissions OK in /tmp? I once managed to screw them up (owner:group all set to root:root) and KDE behaved strangely. I cleaned /tmp altogether and it worked fine again.
Try closing all instances of Konqueror (browser or file manager) after making your changes to the file associations (you'll probably have to use the process table to get rid of one of the one it keeps preloaded). I've found Konq doesn't always respond to changes in file associations until it is restarted.
