Post Icons mixup..

Hi Guys

Next problem when I click on a drive or Pen-drive icon, I get the Open Office splash screen, then nothing. What have I done?

Right clicking and open have the same effect!! I fear I may have messed up on file assocations, etc. Not sure how but that's what it looks like??

Any help would be much appreciated..

Are you running KDE?
Same thing happened to me a few years ago, and after hours of trying to fix it, I exited KDE, logged into a terminal and renamed my ~/.kde directory to ~/.kde.bad
On logging back into KDE, ~/.kde was recreated and all was well, except I had lost all my custom settings, and had to re-do them.
