The icons don't show up at all?  or are just not the right icons?  If
you've pointed to a .desktop file that doesn't exist, then the icons
just won't show up.  If they are not the right ones, then selecting
the "Reset my desktop" option on logging in and choosing "Just for
this session" has corrected that issue for me.

Why is this pointing at openoffice.org-1.9-writer.desktop?  As for the
docx option, I'll check my settings this evening, but another way to
accomplish this on a user-by-user basis is to right click on the file,
and choose the application that is used to launch it.  That
application will then always be used for that extension.
