When using KDE and the graphical file managers dolphin and konqueror,
vlc is not listed as an option to open a DVD ISO.  This is too bad, as
VLC is a very good player to use with DVD ISOs.

The following patch will solve the problem:

diff --git a/share/vlc.desktop.mimetypes b/share/vlc.desktop.mimetypes
index 8c2cf3b..3a261b1 100644
--- a/share/vlc.desktop.mimetypes
+++ b/share/vlc.desktop.mimetypes
@@ -122,6 +122,7 @@ x-content/video-svcd
 # Playlists / text/xml list with URLs
 application/ram                # Realaudio Metadata

Please include it in a future version of vlc.
Happy hacking
Petter Reinholdtsen
