The problem is that when I click on a folder in dash or in cairo-dock I get Smart SVN up instead of Nautilus.

How to resolve this annoying thing?

I tried those suggestions but with no success.

I deleted ~/.local/share/mime/mime.cache and also tried

gconftool --set "/desktop/gnome/applications/component_viewer/exec" --type string "nautilus %s"

But Smart SVN is still associated with the folders.

Open a ~/.local/share/applications/defaults.list and comment this section:

x-directory/normal assignment in [Default Applications]

Like this:

[Default Applications]

This annoying behavior is gone.
