I can't  imagine how that could have happened.  You mean that whatever type 
the file is, kuickshow is used to open it?  I can't think of any one-step way 
to handle that.  

The only thing I can suggest is that you go to kcontrol >KDE Components > File 
Associations and search for each of your most commonly used file types, 
fixing the preferred application for each.  Sorry that it's not an ideal 
situation, but I can't suggest anything else.

Meanwhile, before you do that, and since you can't make things worse, could 
you try selecting another app as the default for opening the jpg and see if 
that changes everything again?  If it does, you have a bug that must be SuSE 
specific, I think.  If it doesn't, it's a freak that we probably can't 
explain, but it shouldn't happen again.
