configuration on kde 4.2

Hello all,

I have had a look at kde 4.2 today. In my case the official slackware packages now 
in /current/testing.

I've spent some time getting the feel of it and am liking it more as I go but 
there are some niggling configuration issues I have yet to sort out.

One can no longer create an icon on the desktop using rightclick create  link to 
application. How is it now done.

I quite liked being able to put my mouse over an icon in konqueror and having a 
little popup tell me things like what type of video file/encoding it was, what 
type of audio it contained, etc. I have not figured out how to get this in 
dolphin. Is it possible?

I have not found any way to set file associations except through configure 
konqueror. Is there another way?

It seems that somehow scribus has been set at the top or near the top as 
associated with every type of text file. It would take ages to delete it manually 
from every text file listing using configure konqueror. Are there any settings 
files related to this that I could just run through with awk or sed and delete all 
the scribus entries and if so where are they.

Finding the new way to do configuration is the most trying thing so far otherwise 
this will be enjoyable once I get used to it.

TIA and cheers!
