Where did you install K3b from?

Try adding the Packman repository to your list; then in YaST/Software
Management, force a vendor change to the Packman repository for the
k3b-langs and k3b-codecs packages. You will also need to select
"normalize" and "transcode", also available on Packman, to have a fully
functioning K3b. Accept any automatic changes that are necessary (to
resolve dependencies), and let the install proceed.

I believe I have all of the packages you describe installed. Codec is
2.0.80+git20151026.2112-17.1 from

If I perform a YAST2 search on codecs, there are 24 codecs listed,
many describes as audio. I do not know which are required by k3b or


Install them all with yast. They are small, so just grab them all.
Your browser is being confused by the OneClick link so just do it
through yast or zypper.

I think that is what I did, using yast2. I can try and remove them and
do it again using zypper if that makes sense. If I look in the
/usr/share/mime/subclassses I see, for example,


and in /usr/share/mime/applications

So the files appear to be where I would expect them. What is broken?
What does the message "k3b(6787) KMimeTypeRepository::parents:
"/usr/share/mime/subclasses" refers to unknown mimetype" refer to.
Something internal to k3b?
