I don't have much in /usr/share/applink (just one directory called internet),
so that's not the source of the duplications. I also have
/opt/kde3/share/applink, but this contains stuff that does not show up on
kmenu (and it would if I was pointed at it, right?). Similarly
So I do not think these are the cause of my problem with duplicated file
associations. Remember in any case, that while my file associations are
duplicated on the list, each member of the pair seems to be pointing at the
same component - if I change one of a pair and then quit, next time both
members of the pair are changed. So it is as if the file associations program
is pointing at the same list of associatoins twice, but thinks it has found
two lots of them. This is somewhat contradicted though by a few of the
associations only appearing once, e.g. under "application" I have:
and so on.
So not straightforward.
But thanks for the suggestion - I found some good kde2 apps while
