Yes, looks good.

Try this

# touch ~/.kde/share/mimelnk/audio/x-mp3.desktop

Does this work?
Explaination: this tries to "touch" the file given its relative path to the 
home directory. "touch" means it will only modify the access timestamp, i.e. 
not do any change on the file itself, but it will test if the access is 

If it works, what does

# kde-config --path mime

write as its output?
