Changing preferred application for ipod [Solved]

Postby JamesFox » Sat May 02, 2009 2:20 pm

In case anyone needs it for the future, here's where the setting can be found: Nautilus File Browser -> Edit -> Preferences -> Media Tab.

Hi all,

When I first connected my iPod to Mint, I got the dialog box asking me what application I wanted to use to open it. I chose Rhythmbox at the time, and against the judgement of the little voice yelling in my head "you're not going to know how to change this later!", I went ahead and clicked the "always use this application" box. Sure enough, that voice was right. :oops: At this point I'd rather go with Exaile. How do I go about changing that setting so that Exaile opens instead of Rhythmbox? I looked through the Preferred Applications settings, as well as changed the "Open With" choice on the iPod's folder in the /media folder, but no luck, Rhythmbox still opens each time. Thanks for any suggestions.

Yeah, this is strange (but well documented) behaviour, but thanks for posting the solution for others' use.
