I love Cinnamon to bits but there seem to be a couple of grotty bits. One that's really giving me grief at the moment is that I can't seem to associate file types with a particular application if the app isn't in the applications list.
For example, I use Visual Slickedit as my programming editor and, for whatever reason, when you right click a file and hit Properties->Open With->Show Other Applications
, Slickedit isn't listed. Unfortunately, the "Add" button is greyed out and I can't seem to find where the system application configuration list is kept so i could edit it manually (the Ubuntu forum thread http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1850568
says it's in /usr/share/applications/myapp.desktop
but the file doesn't exist in my
mint installation). In Gnome 2 you just selected "Custom Command"
but there doesn't seem to be an equivalent (working) mechanism in Cinnamon.
I would have thought this is a fairly serious bug but I can't seem to find anything on it.
All I want to do is associate /home/paul/.slickbin/bin/vs
files; can't be that
(By the way, I've tried running nautilus in root mode to change the properties and the add button is still
