KDE stores its mimetype mappings in ~/.local/share/applications/mimeapps.list, so you might want to have a look at that file.

Answering my own question, I got my notification sounds back, but I'm not sure why they stopped in the first place.

Well, in my case, I only had the choice of vlc, but ...

You need to understand two things in F22: dnf doesn't autorefresh it's cache like yum does, in fact it goes out of it's way to lie to you sometimes.

KDE has a shortcut configuration interface but it appears to support only key presses and mouse gestures, not mouse clicks. So instead you can use the independent program xbindkeys. Add xbindkeys to the Autostart list (System Settings → Startup and Shutdown → Autostart, use the “Add Program” button). Create a file .xbindkeysrc in your home directory ...
