Thread: Chaning MIME/application association for Firefox in KDE

  1. #1

    Question Chaning MIME/application association for Firefox in KDE

    How can I change the MIME/application associations in KDE so that Firefox and other GTK apps see these settings. Right now in Firefox, PDFs open in GIMP and directories in easytag.

    I installed GIMP and hence the associations changed.

    Open "Personal Settings" in the application launcher. Click on "File Associations". Select "application" (should be near the top). That will open a list. Look for "pdf" on that list, and click it. When I do that, I see "Okular, GIMP, ePDFViewer, Evince" listed - one per line. There are buttons to add, delete, move-up, move-down.

    I'm pretty sure that firefox will honor those, though a change made in firefox settings probably overrides what you set here.

    That's the problem. I do not see okular there.

    I am using Firefox from Mozilla's website, so its more tied to GTK. I know that somewhere from the configuration it reads the file associations as used GTK and displays the default options.



    P.S. I added okular by inputting the path /usr/bin/okular in the "open with" option of download dialog, but I find it a very crude way of doing things.
