    Default context menu contains duplicate items


    when i right click the mouse over a audio file (for example), a floating
    context menu is shown. If I were to select the 'Open with' menu item, I
    see some duplicated entries of applications to run the file with.

    Likewise, if I were to select the >Open with>Open with application menu
    item, the window that comes up also show duplicated entries for certain
    items.

    How do I clean it up?

    Is this kde3?

    Lets assume for the moment it offers 2 identical options to Open with
    Amarok.

    Right click a music file - properties
    In the box that pops up click the spanner

    In the next box showing the list of applications, if there are 2
    identical Amarok, delete one.
    OK/Apply

    Now try.

    But you can still try the above as I suggested can't you? Or did you?

    I got this one resolved....Right click on audiofile, select 'properties'
    item, 'properties' dialogbox show, select 'open with' tab, etc.

    The remaining issue is with...right click on audiofile, select 'open
    with' item, 'open with' dialogbox shows with listing of all programs to
    choose from. Some of the listed programs have duplicate entries but
    there is no remove button or something similar to get rid of them
