Just annotations of little "how to's", so I know I can find how to do something I've already done when I need to do it again, in case I don't remember anymore, which is not unlikely. Hopefully they can be useful to others, but I can't guarantee that it will work, or that it won't even make things worse.

mimeopen: a nice tool to setup default applications

Posted 10-05-2013 at 01:06 AM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

File association and default applications can be quite complicated, and hard to remember, specially if you have a hybrid environment, using stuff from Gnome, KDE, and whatever, while not being in none of the big ones, but on openbox or something.

One common source of problems are associations within web browsers, like firefox or chrome. They'll often have their own or use some secondary/wrong file association. I was having this problem with Google Chrome, "show in folder"...
