Where does KDE store the file assocition configuration.
Editing the file associations with kde's default gui is quiet tiresome. Where is the confile file for it actually stored so that I can change the associations the way I want to.

I use KDE 4.3 on KUbunutu 9.10

Try searching in:


I think this method will be more tiresome. You have to manually edit a number of files, like for email client you need to edit the file emaildefaults.

Well its a directory. I checked all the files there couldn't find such thing that relates to file associaltions. There are just too many file associations than the number of files there. I think its got to be some file.

Example : associate an application, e.g. 'mousepad' to a text file,
and trace the configuration file ..

grep -R mousepad .local/*
