Oh how I love Ubuntu and all its features, but this "bug" has been making me angry for so long and I've finally decided to ask for help here.
I've assigned all
.php files to be opened with gedit whenever I double-click them in nautilus. Now, the behavior is strange.
- I have no gedit running
- I double click a file to be opened
- A gedit window opens and the file loads
- I double click another file to be opened
Now, there are 2 possible outcomes:
5A) The file opens in the same gedit window in a new tab
5B) The file opens in a new gedit window, resulting in 2 gedits running.
Whether A or B happens seems to be totally random and keeps on going infinitely. That means I double click on 100 files and I might end up with 60 gedits, some of which will have 1 tab, some will have 2 tabs, some will have 3 tabs...
This is extremely annoying and a fix for this would be very appreciated. Anyone ever tried to fix this problem?
This has happened in Ubuntu 10.04, 10.10 and 11.10. All Ubuntu versions I've ever tested.
