View Full Version : [SOLVED] Service menu (right click in Dolphin) trashed with old and multiple entries

In Dolphin, when right clicking for context menu, my "Open with" list is trashed with multiple entries, that also contain old applications that I no longer have (or even had?). Just for example: for pdfs I have 3 Acrobat Readers, 2 FoxitReaders, 2 okulars, 2 GIMPs (?) etc. Same for other file types.

How to clean it? I absolutely don't mind wiping it completely, so that it all goes back to default values. Configuring it anew is much better than having this list bother me every time I use a right click.

I'm on 10.10 now, upgraded from 10.04. I've been using my home folder for like ever, without cleaning it, which is probably the source of the issue.

Thank you in advance.

Solved by deleting all entries in ~/.local/share/applications/ (they were trash left from previous system installs).
