KDE: Could not find mime type

For some odd reason KDE started reporting "Could not find mime type application/octet-stream" whenever I would start a KDE component. There appear to be two solutions to this problem.

Remove the file:

rm /home/[username]/.kde/share/mimelnk/application/octet-stream.desktop Or add the mime-type:
  • Start the Control Center
  • Open KDE Components
  • Open File Associations
  • Click Add
  • Group "application"
  • Type name "octet-stream"
  • Click OK
