[solved] Some issues with MATE

Postby lleiria on Sat Apr 14, 2012 8:44 am

Hi,
That must be easy and dumb, but I don't know how to solve it. When I'm on the Mozilla Firefox box of recent downloads, choose one and right click to open its location, Firefox ask me what application do I want to use to make that. I think it's lost because of the change between nautilus and caja, but I don't know where is caja to tell Firefox to use it.
Also: after installing caja-gksu, when I want to open a place with "open as root", it tries to open with... VLC!! Probably, its the same issue...
Any help, please?

Ok, the first topic solved the firefox issue. Thanks, axl!
Nevertheless, I still can't open as root; the system tries to open the location with totem.
Still need some help...

You're welcome.

Here is what you asked:
Code: Select all
pc-principal lleiria # ~/.local/share/applications/mimeapps.list
bash: /root/.local/share/applications/mimeapps.list: No such file or directory

Not as root please. In your user account /home/USER/...
cat the file or open it with your chosen text editor:
Code: Select all
cat ~/.local/share/applications/mimeapps.list
or
Code: Select all
pluma ~/.local/share/applications/mimeapps.list

axl,

OK, reading other topics, I changed

Code: Select all
inode/directory=totem.desktop;vlc.desktop;

to
Code: Select all
inode/directory=caja.desktop;

That solved the issue. The one thing I lost was the usual different color when I open as root. Do you know how to fix this?
Thanks a lot
