Quote from a previous thread:

I don't know if you running KDE 3 or 4 but in Intrepid and KDE 4 i
start System settings->Advanced tab->File bindings. In the treeview
select text and then fore every filetype that has Kate as an option of
program to the right, select the kate option and click edit, in the
dialog that opens select the Program tab and change the Command from
kate %U to kate --use %U.
This is untested but i think it should work.
