Hi Nikolaus,

I'd like to second that question.

I use TDE applications in a Mint / Mate environment (wasn't able to get all the

under TDE with my new laptop, otherwise a long and satisfied TDE user here).

Same for me starting TDE applications. Not only Kmail asks for the kind of 
program to be used to open any application. Even Konqueror asks for it when 
adviced to open something in an external window. It opens PDF, PNG and others 
fine in its internal viewer though.

I can search for an application and tell Konqueror to remember that application 
for that file type but -- unfortunately it gets not remembered next time.

I also am looking forward to how to solve the problem. Might it be also linked 
to the bug 2713 Slávek wrote about in a former mail?

Any hint is highly appreciated
