How can I set a filetype to always open with a specific application?
.local/share/applications/mimeapps.list there was this line
It always opens with
jalbum does not appear in the Open with list.
jalbum should be (and always used to be) the default application, I changed it to
But that doesn't seem to change anything.
In answers to similar questions "Ubuntu Tweak" has been suggested as a way to manage this problem, but that option seems to have disappeared from current versions of "Tweak".
I tried fixing this using the Nautilus Properties display, but
jalbum doesn't show up there as an alternative application.
Is there some other way to fix this?
@JohnnyD It seems that the edit that I described actually worked, but needed a restart to take effect.
But the second app listed in
mimeapps.list (gedit) is now not available in "Open with", and if I choose it from "Other applications", then jalbum disappears again!
It also seems that when I originally searched for "Ubuntu Tweak" in the Software Centre I found "Unity Tweak" which appears to be a different animal, so my earlier comments about "Ubuntu Tweak" really applied to "Unity Tweak" instead.
So the immediate problem was resolved, but - with regard to your suggested solutions, I couldn't see any way in "Open with" to insert an app manually that doesn't already appear in the list.
And I couldn't see in "Unity tweak Tool" a way to register a filetype that isn't already in the "File Type" list.
