I am using gnome-shell 3.4 My external hard drive prompts to open with Puddletag and when I clock on my removeable devices, they open with puddletag. WHY is this?
When you plug-in your HD and when it prompts to choose an application: Choose "Nautilus "
Right click on folder -> Properties -> Open with -> choose "Nautilus"
Right click on folder -> Open with directly -> Other application -> Choose "Files/Nautilus" -> Remember this application
You may need to check the system-wide default.list files that control default applications to confirm they have this line:
Instead of "something else" to handle opening directories. From what I can tell (I am on Linux Mint 13) the files that you may need to check are:
I have noticed if I only change /etc/gnome/defaults.list or /usr/share/applications/defaults.list that the change is not permanent and will be reset after reboot.
I needed to modify these to use nemo.desktop instead of nautilus.desktop (in Mint I have purged nautilus as I use nemo as the file manager). When these files referenced nautilus.desktop (although nautilus was removed), I also had puddletag being called to open a folder!
