I guess the question says it all =/ Already installed Ubuntu Tweak and fiddled with the associations, but nothing is associated with Gwenview. Still, the rubbish bin opens up with it instead of nautilus. How can I fix it?

Your problem sounds similar to this resolved question about folders in Nautilus opening in Movie Player by default. Perhaps your issue has a similar cause? – Christopher Kyle Horton Oct 31 '11 at 9:04

The problem may lie in this file: ~/.local/share/applications/mimeapps.list.

You could back it up and then delete it. The file will be reconstituted as you open apps over time: "as you use the context menu or set new defaults the list will 'grow'".

More detailed information is in this Ubuntu Forums thread.

I had this problem when I upgraded 11.04 to 11.10 and clicking Trash in the Launcher opened Movie Player.
