I saw the following question, but I can't comment yet. So I decided to create a separate one.
I have both
deluge installed. And I have no association for
application/x-bittorrent mime type, based on contents of
~/.local/share/applications/mimeapps.list. But it seems
.torrent extension has association and it's
transmission. That is when I double-click a
transmission is opened. The same goes for when I open it in
The question is how come it is
transmission? Why not
deluge? Both have this mime type in their
.desktop files. Are the associations stored somewhere else?
$ egrep bittorrent /usr/share/applications/mimeapps.list egrep: /usr/share/applications/mimeapps.list: No such file or directory $ egrep bittorrent /usr/share/applications/mimeinfo.cache application/x-bittorrent=transmission-gtk.desktop;deluge.desktop; $ egrep bittorrent /usr/share/applications/defaults.list $ egrep bittorrent /home/yuri/.local/share/applications/mimeapps.list $ egrep bittorrent /home/yuri/.local/share/applications/defaults.list egrep: /home/yuri/.local/share/applications/defaults.list: No such file or directory
The default is
transmission. Changing order in
/usr/share/applications/mimeinfo.cache changes the default application. Probably one shouldn't rely on this behavior.
