How to set default application
I have 3 text editors I use. In Linux Mint gedit is the default editor. How do I make another editor the default?
I have two applications that will open .doc files. How do I select which application will open the .doc file when clicked on?
You didn't mention your linux distro.
export EDITOR=your editor
for ubuntu & debina
sudo update-alternatives --config editor
choose your application
It depends on your distro. Debian tends to make a symlink in /etc/alternatives/ with strange names like:
or for editors:
/etc/alternatives/gnome-text-editor -> /usr/bin/gedit
YMMV and so might your distro. And there's probably a more proper administrative way to change those than rm and ln -s.
