error with every kde app i run after an online update


hi,

i just finished running an update with the YaST2 Online Update module and i rebooted as instructed and after i rebooted, upon login, i get 3 pop-ups from just about every kde app saying:

Code:
-----------------------------
|  Sorry  -  Konqueror      |
|---------------------------|
|                           |
| Could not find mine type  |
| application/octet-stream  |
|                           |
|                           |
|         | OK |            |
|                           |
|                           |
|---------------------------|
this only happened after the update and just about anything kde-related gives me this message. and sometimes a plain message without a specific application name

thanks,

rabbit2345

Hi, first message
Find and delete (or rename, if you are not sure) octect-stream.desktop. Then kde will make a new one.
This works for me.

thanks Theslar for the tip.
i can delete it and everything will be fine, but i notice the error comes back when i try to set a program to open a *.rmi file. they are basically midi files, and i have done this for *.exe too, but no error occured. is there a reason for this?

Sorry for the delay. And sorry again, I can not help you. I am a very, very newbie in Linux :-(. Just one month user. As far I see (and I don't see so far :-)) play with file associations on KDE is very difficult. Here is how KDE manage it file-associations. Maybe this could help you.

i sometimes get dependecy conflicts, like when updating some packages, i get a message saying that something depends on something that is supposedly going to be uninstalled, but is actually just marked to be updated, so i ignore the message. would this have something to do with it?

thanks,

Use yast2 > software management there is a option check dependency if there a conflict check the install message packages
if there some with a different color mostly suse is not happy with this packages try to resolve them


all the best
