In my Fedora 27 KDE there is confusion of extensions, sometimes xlsx files appear as zip (and ends up opening ark instead of libreoffice) how to fix this problem?

xlsx files are zip files, so unless something is specifically assigned to open that file extension, the archive manager will be chosen. Normally, libreoffice will claim them, but it sounds like something has gone wrong with that. Right-click an xlsx file and choose properties. Go to the "open with" tab and choose libreoffice.

Right click the file and you can choose the application with which you want to open it.

For me this is a mistake. Zip is Zip, XLSX is XLSX

Is there nothing to be done?
