Fix kdeconnect_open MimeType


This changes the MimeType handler of the kdeconnect_open desktop file from an invalid "/" to the (hopefully) appropriate "application/octet-stream;" as discussed here(including this solution), here and here.

Test Plan


  1. Run the "update-desktop-database" command with kdeconnect installed
  2. Observe the error message:

Error in file "/usr/share/applications/org.kde.kdeconnect_open.desktop": "*/*" is an invalid MIME type ("*" is an unregistered media type)

The databases in [/usr/share/applications] could not be updated.


  1. Run the "update-desktop-database" command with patched kdeconnect installed
  2. No error, desktop database is updated
