I have a quite fresh installation of Ubuntu 18.04, When I create a directory on Desktop, I can't open it by double clicking on it. I have to right click → Open with other applicationFiles and then it works (it also works when I open Files manager and then go to "Desktop" and select that directory). How do I fix this?

  • What desktop environment are you using ? gnome ? – noone May 16 '18 at 9:31
  • What's the first entry in the context menu above "Open with other applications" or is that the first entry? – David Foerster May 16 '18 at 10:07
  • @SmitTheLastFirefoxUser yes, I'm using GNOME – user2394156 May 18 '18 at 8:01
  • @DavidFoerster this is what is shown to me when I select "Open with other applications": i.imgur.com/wyeJSiD.png – user2394156 May 18 '18 at 8:03
  • Ok, but that doesn't answer my question. Also, could you please edit your post when you want to clarify something or add information? It’s best to have everything relevant in one place. Additionally, comments may be deleted for various reasons. Thanks. – David Foerster May 18 '18 at 8:04
