<SOLVED> Cinnamon file browser error

<SOLVED> Cinnamon file browser error

Postby c4uck on Fri Sep 21, 2012 1:31 am

Whenever I select a folder like Downloads or Videos from the "Places" menu, the applications qedit opens with an error message instead of the file browser.

Error message: /home/fred/Documents is a directory.

I'm running LMDE update 5 and Cinnamon 1.6

What do I need to do to fix this issue??

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Open the file "~/.local/share/applications/mimeapps.list", and in the "[Added Associations]" section, make the entry for "inode/directory" nautilus instead of gedit...

Could I have deleted the "inode/directory' line completely if I needed?

Thanks for the help.
