I am using Mint 12 KDE. I often use a mindmapping software called VUE, which allows one to generate a mind map in a GUI and then saves the file as an XML file. In my start menu, I have created a shortcut and icon for it (in the Office section of the start menu, which launches VUE by executing a .jar:
java -jar /home/NAME/PATH/VUE/VUE_3-1-2.jar
What I can't seem to do is create a file type for that. Dolphin looks at the file and classifies it as an HTML document, which means it uses Firefox to open it when I click on it. So I went to System Settings > File Associations > Add / Create a new file type. Not knowing which group to take, I tool the group text (because html/xml is text). I gave that thing a name (VUE Mindmap), gave it an icon, told it to open files like this with Office: VUE, etc. and it doesn't do unicorns. In Dolphin, .vue files are still considered HTML docs, it still opens with Firefox ...
In Gnome (before this whole Unity crap, that is) , this was all no problem - what's the glitch here, any thoughts?
