Chromium keeps opening svg files in the browser despite the default association of Inkscape with svg files.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Download an svg file
  2. Go to chrome:downloads and click on the svg file.
  3. It opens in Chromium in a new tab instead of Inkscape

Check if the lines below are presents on file:

sudo nano /usr/share/applications/mimeinfo.cache

  • Yes, they are. This does not solve the problem, unfortunately. – orschiro Oct 23 '15 at 19:15
