Blueman-applet defaults

I'm using the blueman-applet 1.21 in Slackware 13.1. I have two cell phones configured and trusted in blueman-applet.

This should be simple but I'm not finding an answer. How do I configure the default viewer and file browser when using blueman-applet? When I send a photo to my computer, blueman-applet always opens the file in Firefox. Likewise for file browsing. I can choose not to view, and then view from my system file manager, but I'd like to set preferred apps for immediate access through the blueman-applet dialog.

Thanks much.

Just a guess,
but it looks like xdg-open does not know how to open your files.

To see what programme xdg-open uses for a certain file, Try:

xdg-mime query filetype someting.jpg
image/jpeg; charset=binary

xdg-mime query default image/jpeg
to get this, in the directory /usr/share/applications/ you need:
the file defaults.list with this entry

and the file geeqie.desktop with the command to start geeqie.
