Relative noob here. Need help trying to figure this one out:
I have a program (Guitar pro 6) that I want to associate to all .gpx files so that when i start such a file, it is started with that program. Ubuntu 12.10 doesnt do that by default. It says it doesnt know which program to use and offers to identify that right program from a list. However, this program is not in the list. Not to worry: so I read in this post
How people solved this in 12.04 (By edditing '/usr/share/applications/Guitar Pro 6.desktop' and adding %u to Exec= line.
However, in my situation (difference being the release level?) it doesn't work.
Any help is appreciated
Update: I finaly got word back from the GuitarPro support team:
"About the file association issue, this seems to be more related to your computer, there is not feature in GP that will allow you to correct this. You might have to set your Linux Window manager to correct this."
Well this is no help, obviously
Again: its an anoyance more then a huge problem but I'd still like to figure this one out. I'm running regular compiz window manager btw.
Does anybody have any thoughts on how to fix this?
