After installing certain applications I can't get them to show up under Open With from the right-click context menu when I right click on a file.
If I click on the Other Application... from the context menu and click on the Show other applications I can't find them on the list.

Is there a way to manually add applications to this menu?


If the application is not listed, once you click on Show Other Applications, then, an .desktop file needs to be created in ~/.local/share/applications

To create that file, take a look at this Post to see an example on how its done.
