how can I change the default applications showed when I open unity. At the moment it's Chromium, OpenShot, Thunderbird and Banshee. I'd like to replace the Banshee starter with a customized icon and command. I'm using Ubuntu 11.10
For a customized command & icon you'd need to create a custom .desktop & preferably place in a typical applications dir. like ~/.local/share/applications ; /usr/local/share/applications ; /usr/share/applications, (i'd use the 1st one
The Exec= line for your command, the Icon= line for the icon
You could try including in the .desktop a line like this, may help your .desktop show up in System Settings > System Info > Default applicatons > Music
If it doesn't, no matter. Open ~/.local/share/applications/mimeapps.list & in the [Default Applications] section create or edit this line, using the name of your custom.desktop
I found the solution. Open the terminal and install gnome panel:
Then you can run the item editor:
I can't check if this is exactly the right command because I've lost my password but it should work.
