I've just upgraded from Linux Mint 9 GNOME to Linux Mint 12 KDE. I didn't touch my home partition, so all the config files for the GNOME install and the file associations for Nautilus etc were still there. The new KDE desktop is showing a bunch of GNOME applications that no longer exist.

Does anyone know how I can remove those associations globally via the command line.

Feeling lazy today or has it been a long day? :-)

I am not sure how, I never needed to do that, but here are couple links I found on Google, which might be helpful.

I search for the phrase "changing file association from command line in linux" linked below
