I have visited this question and tried everything mentioned with no success: How do I set IDLE as default editor for python scripts
When I right click a .py file:
- IDLE does not show up in the first menu (the only option is Gedit).
- IDLE does not show up in 'Open With Other Application...' menu
- IDLE does not show up in 'Show other applicatons' menu
I had found the solution to this problem online before, for a previous Ubuntu 12.04 installation, but cannot locate it again.
I imagine this can be fixed through file associations?
Additionally, IDLE windows do not possess an icon and show as a grey box with a '?'.
