KDE unable to associate with solvespace (.slvs) files

I have success in setting the default application for many filetypes but not .slvs which is a solvespace file.

Here is some debugging investigation:

$ xdg-mime query filetype mysolvespacefile.slvs 
$ xdg-mime query default application/x-solvespace
$ kbuildsycoca5
kbuildsycoca5 running...
kf5.kservice.sycoca: Service type not found: "application/x-solvespace"
$ ktraderclient5 --mimetype application/x-solvespace
mimetype is : application/x-solvespace KMimeTypeTrader: mimeType "application/x-solvespace" not found
got 0 offers.

Despite having an entry for solvespace in


KDE is unable to find the mimetype. I was following this thread to try to get an answer. Even strace did not seem to yield any useful info: … ssociation

If anyone has seen this I'd be grateful to hear back. I am tempted to say it is a KDE bug.
