I have a similar problem, the extension is gone.

However, I am able to write *.kdenlive and then just open any .kdenlive fil

Same situation for both kubuntu 8.04/kde3/kde 4.1.2 and 8.10/kde4/4.1.2

I think perhaps jb runs 4.2.x

What are you running?

I have KDE-4.1.3-52.2 on OpenSuSE 11.0.

I have no filter available. Also *.* isnt there. Only directories are shown.

Same here, Kubuntu 8.10 with KDE 4.1.3. I have a laptop running 4.2.X (KDE nightly) so if it's useful I can build Kdenlive on there and see if we get a different result.

cinephiliac: yes that would be great if you could test kde-4.2.x

OK, I think I found the code that opens this dialog:

 KUrl url = KFileDialog::getOpenUrl(KUrl(), "application/x-kdenlive");

It appears we all lack this mime type. There is a file in src/mimetypes/kdenlive.xml, that may have to be installed. My guess is that we have all installed to a non-standard place (not /usr or /usr/local).

That's correct in my case. I'm in ~/Apps/Kdenlive. Doitux is this accurate for you as well?

Same here. I installed to prefix $HOME/opt.
I added $HOME/opt/share to my XDG_DATA_DIRS path.
Then, I ran 'update-mime-database $HOME/opt/share/mime'.
However, I still do not see anything in the file open dialog.

I wonder if KDE needs to see this change to XDG_DATA_DIRS instead of just kdenlive.

But perhaps relying upon proper shared-mime-info setup, we need at least a filter to see all files instead of users needing to know to give the filter field focus and/or clearing it and pressing Enter to see all files.

Svn rev 2691 contains a fix to support *.kdenlive, when the mime type is not found. Tested - closing bug.
