I can certainly do that. Several of "us" using KDE have found that if you
install the freedesktop-menus... from the desktop-integration

you won't have to do any manual configuration of mime-types, as this will
take care of that.

It seems this little tip needs to be added to the Install Instructions as
well. hmmm...


And of course I'll be happy to help with testing of any KDE integration.

Well, there will be more to do in that regard, but this is first step. I
