Torrent clients using the incorrect default programs for "Open destination folder"


Okay, So I'm working in Slackware 12.2 and I've got a Slackbuilt IceWM running. I'm using pcmanfm as my file manager and I've got both Transmission and qbittorrent installed at the moment.

What's happening is when I right click on a torrent and click open desination folder (or just "Open Folder" in Transmission) the programs do not call pcmanfm. Transmission opens a search program, which pops up with "Find:_________" where the blank is filled out with the name of the file I clicked on, and qbittorrent opens Firefox and points it at the destination folder.

In the preferences of these two programs I can not find anything that would allow me to alter what program it launches when I click on the open destination folder. The same is true for pcmanfm, although I did discover it has a desktop pinboard and can control the wallpaper.

I guess what I need to know is how to set default programs universally in slackware. So now that I realize the root of my problem I'll google it, but I already typed all this so by God I'ma post it.

[edit] I'm not finding anything useful so I guess I needed to post this anyway.

I'm not sure if this is a Slackware or an IceWM specific issue. Probably IceWM. Anyone with any leads, thanks in advance.

Surprise bump from someone with the same dilemma.

It works when I have thunar installed though...

EDIT: Found the solution, I had to append
Quote:
x-directory/normal=pcmanfm.desktop
to the end of ~/.local/share/applications/defaults.list
