Change the default file manager

Postby sdd » Tue May 29, 2012 5:25 pm

Is it possible to change the default file manager under Cinnamon?

When I insert a USB stick, it opens with nautilus, and I would prefer to use an alternative.

The file amanger isn't one of the options under Sysatem Settings | Details.

Very interested in this as well. Nautilus is decent but I would like the option to change the default.

What you are looking for is "Preferred Applications" in mate it's under Menu > Applications > Preferences and in Xfce it's under Applications Menu > Settings. Not sure where it's at in Cinnamon but Preferred Applications is what you're looking for. hope this helped.
