Opening of photos automatically using wine (bad)


Whenever I use my file manager to open photos(JPEG), it will do it automatically using wine which is not what I want.

I have gone to edit preferences but I cant see any viable solution. Pls help.

Hello,

When you right click on the files, you should see something like "Open With..." or something of that nature. Just do that, click on your image viewer, and make sure it gets set as the default viewer for your jpeg files.

Cheers,

Josh

The correct is file-> properties -> open with -> gwenview -> click add.

You are not supposed to alter anything on the file manager itself. !

What are you talking about? I'm not on linux right now, but there are multiple ways to do it. What I posted before is one of them, just not sure the EXACT steps, since I use more advanced distros than you.

Something else to add... Please don't create a new thread if you already know the answer. Consider this a warning. If it happens again, you have a possibility to get a warning, points on your account, and at maximum, banned from these forums. I am just explaining what can happen way down the road from now if you don't use your brain; Overall, think before you post.

Hi, let me explain.

You have to click on the photo and alter the properties.

You do not click on edit-> preferences in the file manager and fiddle around there.

It is not that I knew the answer beforehand.

I figured out the answer subsequently after some trial and error and I like to share it.

Cheers!
