Kate doesn't recognize file types

view full story

http://forums.opensuse.org – Hello everyone, I'm having trouble with the Kate text editor. Last year I was running Kubuntu and Kate would recognize file types and open in the appropriate mode. For example, if in the terminal I typed: kate script.cpp Kate would open with c++ highlighting and indenting. On OpenSUSE however, this doesn't happen. Kate opens in normal mode when I type the above command. Does anyone know how I can get Kate to recognize the .cpp suffix and open in the correct mode? Any help is appreciated. (Distributions)
