This question already has an answer here:
I installed Ubuntu 12.04, with
texworks. When I double-click a
.tex file in Nautilus, it pops up a
Do you want to run "xxxxxxxx.tex", or display it contents? "xxxxxxxx.tex" is an executable text file. Run in Terminal Display Cancel Run
If I choose
Display, it opens
texworks. How can I make it open without seeing the above conversation window?
By the way, is
.tex file indeed an executable file?
Just for the case, my
~/.local/share/applications/mimeapps.list file looks like the following:
[Default Applications] text/html=google-chrome.desktop x-scheme-handler/http=google-chrome.desktop x-scheme-handler/https=google-chrome.desktop x-scheme-handler/about=google-chrome.desktop x-scheme-handler/unknown=google-chrome.desktop text/x-tex=texworks.desktop x-scheme-handler/mailto=google-chrome.desktop [Added Associations] text/x-tex=texworks.desktop; text/x-bibtex=jabref.desktop;gedit.desktop;
I observe texworks are both up and down. Should I remove one?
This does not happen with all .tex files. In fact, I am currently using Ubuntu 12.04 under Virtual Box with Windows 7 host. I have my Dropbox account synced with the Windows 7 host, and I access files in Dropbox in Ubuntu through Virtual Box's shared folder functionality. (I didn't install Dropbox client in Ubuntu.)
Files in Dropbox are owned by
root with group
vboxsf. My personal account is in the group
It seems that I have to uncheck the option for "executable", but I have all my .tex files in the Dropbox shared folder. Would there be any workaround?
