Dear list,

I compiled and installed Scribus under Suse 10.1 with KDE. I was 
surprised that Scribus' SLA-files weren't automatically associated with 
the Scribus-App, so I wrote an eMail to the KDE-usability-list. There 
were some answers on my mail, here a summary:

ah yes, real world useful versus theoretically useful. *applause* =/

someone should thump the scribus team kindly on the noggin and suggest that
adding that one entry into their .desktop file would make scribus more 
for the majority of open source desktop users, aka "kde users".

kde4 supports (or at least will: dfaure is implementing it) the xdg mime 
before that point, scribus needs to fix their stuff.
