Since GNOME has changed to follow the freedesktop.org standard of handling mimetypes, the editing of preferred programs in GNOME Commander is currently broken (v 1.1.7). We do have this in our TODO file, but until GCMD can handle edititing of preferred programs, there are two other ways of managing this on user basis; use nautilus or manually edit the configuration files that controls mime types in your home directory. Using Nautilus for doing this can feel quite awkward for GNOME Commander users, we usually do not use GNOME Commander because we like using Nautilus.. Anyway, here is how to do it the manual way:
These configuration files usually lives in
There are three types of files here:
[Desktop Entry] Encoding=UTF-8 Name=display MimeType=image/png;image/jpeg; Exec='/usr/bin/display' Type=Application Terminal=false NoDisplay=true
[MIME Cache] audio/mpeg=xmms-usercreated.desktop;mpg123-usercreated.desktop; image/png=display-usercreated.desktop
[Default Applications] audio/mpeg=xmms-usercreated.desktop image/png=display-usercreated.desktop
Please refer to freedesktop.org or your distribution of choise for further details.
