I want to set up kfm associations (icons & applications) for Applix files.
All the various Applix (wp, spreadsheet, graphics, etc) files are
handled by one 'application', which looks at the file type and decides
what part of the suite should open the document:
applix wp-doc.aw # opens in Applix Words
applix ss-doc.as # opens in Applix Spreadsheet
So, I want one MIME type 'application/x-applix', handled by one
application, but multiple icons according to the file suffix.
I use kfm (as non-root user) to set this up:
Edit/New/Application: Execute 'applix', MIME type 'application/x-applix'
Edit/New/MIME Type: Pattern: '*.aw', MIME type 'application/x-applix'
Edit/New/MIME Type: Pattern: '*.as', MIME type 'application/x-applix'
but only one is recognized. E.g., I can get all Applix word documents
(*.aw) associated, but the other Applix file types are still 'Text
editor' files. If I play around, moving the MIME type .kdelnk's, or
so, I can get a different type associated, but still only one.
Can a MIME type only have one icon/pattern to identify it? If so,
why? This seems like a not-unusual situation.
