oddly enough my installation of Visual Paradigm set its type to application/zip.
When i try to open it, it uses the same applications that other .zip files use.
Sure i could right-click + open with + Visual paradigm , but ….
So instead we’re going to create a new file type for that .vpp extension.
Create a new filetype in KDE
1 – Add a “x-vpp” type.
2 – select it (it down the list, inside the application category)
3 – Add a filename Pattern:
4 – Add an Application
* browse to your “Visual Paradigm for UML” binary file ( /path/vp/bin/Visual_Paradigm_for_UML_8.3 )
5 – Select an icon
* check the “resources” directory in your VP installation ( path/vp/resources/vpuml.png )
6 – press OK
Ok, now we need to edit the culprit of this mess:
Change the mimetype for Visual Paradigm for UML
and change the mimetype to:
Restart your file manager
and we’re done! re-open your konqi/dolphin and .vpp files will always open with VP and your .zip will never again
be open with VP!
