Right click context menu not as wanted

Right click context menu not as wanted

Postby Underpants on Wed Feb 06, 2013 4:03 pm

I want to right click on a folder and easily open it in my favorite music player. Let's say, VLC. I have choosen "Other Application" selected VLC and the option to "Remember" this selection. The folder then opens in VLC exactly as I would expect. But the option never sticks. It's just as seen in the screenshot. Any help would be appreciated.

You might try "Open as Administrator" before specifying chosen application, and then see if your preference will be remembered.

I know the file that controls it is /usr/share/applications/defaults.list

Here are some directions: http://www.libre-software.net/change-th ... int-ubuntu

Remember to back it up just in case you jack something up.
