 Why not "Open With"?

Why not use "Open With" -> "KWrite" ? If KWrite isn't available for that file type it can be added using the File Associations manager.

because every file is not associated with Kwrite..For example when I want to edit a non text file, I have to manage file handlings..This is very useful for me..

Why not associate the files with KWrite, then? Here's how to do it:

1. Open the "File Associations" manager (either from the Konqueror preferences or from Kcontrol)

2. Select "All" -> "allfiles"

3. In the pane on the right, click "Add" and find KWrite in the application tree. Select it and click OK.

4. Click OK to save the file associations.

Now you can right-click any file and select KWrite from the "Open With" menu. If you set KWrite to be at the top of the list, it should automatically open the file if you middle-click it in Konqueror.

This is the way you are supposed to associate applications. Service menus are meant to be used for special functions/actions, not simple file associations.

 Kwrite not Kate?

Hello, just wondering why you have chosen kwrite over kate? afterall kate offers the same features as kwrite yet has many more features.

I say little more - although kate is my preffered editor (there is mcedit on the second place), many people use ViM (kvim), xedit etc. So any human can write own *.desktop file and place it where he needs. A lot of articles on kde.org written about it. But all you need is to automatize this process: right-clicking on file (eg /usr/local/bin/mplayer) -> "add to menu 'open with'" or "add to menu 'open with' for chosen mime types". As i know, last way is officially realized in /usr/lib/menu/* or /etc/menu/* files...

Keep it simple...

Yes, of course. I dont have a need for this package and if I did, I would change my config to launch kate (or simply add it to the "open with" menu myself). However, I would think that for people who would consider this package would also be the people not willing to play with config files etc. and therefore suggest that kate for these people would be a better option.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
