Righ Click Open With Doesn't Work

Postby mentalduh » Wed Nov 05, 2008 7:18 pm

My default editor has been kate for a lot years now; gedit is the default in Linux Mint. I've installed kate and it works, however, when I right click on a file and choose 'Open with "Kate"' nothing happens. Any suggestions please?

Never mind. I was able to fix the problem by right clicking on the file, choosing 'open with', then selecting 'open with other application', then I selected 'Use a custom command. I then entered '/usr/bin/kate'. The document opened and I am now able to double-click any text file and have it open with kate.

I would still be interested in knowing why.
