MIME Types and Associated Applications

As you install new kinds of programs, they may use files of a certain type. In that case, you will need to register the type with KDE so that it can be associated with a given application or group of applications. For example, the MIME type for GIF images is image/gif, which is associated with image-viewing programs. You use the KDE Control Center to set up a new MIME type or to change MIME type associations with applications. Select the File Association entry under KDE Components. This will list known MIME types and their associated filename extensions. Select an entry to edit it, where you can change the applications associated with it. KDE saves its MIME type information in a separate file called mimelnk in the KDE configuration directory.
