I recently removed a number of different packages notably media-video/vlc. The emerge --depclean process apparently did not remove all of the file associations. I use kde and it's file associats editor in settings seems to expect one at a time editing. I'm not really thrilled to do this.

What I'd like to do is remove VLC from all file association lists.

It also seems that if I've adjust associations manually for any package, these will also remain in place upon package deletion.

What I'd like to do is remove the target programs from the various file association lists in batch and then force an update of the kde menus.

Can this or something similar be done?

Have a look in .local/share/applications/mimeapps.list

Thank you for the tip. I can coble up some kind of command/script to do the minimum of what I want. For some reason, I didn't think to look outside of ~/.kde4.
