I'm attempting to follow the steps here to change the the default application that opens a Blender file.
I input the command
mimeopen -dmime my_file.blend and when prompted for the application, I input the path to a new version of Blender. Note: I have used this method once to successfully associate .blend files with an older version of Blender, but I can't switch the association now. It just outputs
~/Desktop $ mimeopen -d my_file.blend gtPlease choose a default application for files of type application/x-blender 1) home (home-usercreated-1) 2) Other... use application #/home/garrett/blender-2.69-2aeb492-linux-glibc211-x86_64/blender Cancelled ~/Desktop $
I also tried using this method to change associations of .txt files to
/usr/bin/gedit with the same result.
What's going wrong? I'm on Ubuntu 13.10 and using mimeopen 0.15 (the default).
