When I click on anything in Places>, it automatically opens up my VLC.


How do I get this to stop? When I even click on Pictures, it opens up VLC instead, it did the same thing with rhythmbox nd movie player as well.

Can you post the contents of your ~/.local/share/applications/mimeapps.list file for me? This is a common problem....

Open a terminal, and run the following:
Code:
gedit ~/.local/share/applications/mimeapps.list
Copy and paste the contents of that file. Use code tags also, like so:
[ code ]
[ /code ]
(Take out the spaces though.)

Edit that file again and remove all contents, and replace with the following:
Code:

inode/directory=nautilus-folder-handler.desktop;vlc.desktop;totem.desktop;rhythmbox.desktop;
application/x-ms-dos-executable=mount-archive.desktop;
image/vnd.microsoft.icon=mount-archive.desktop;wine.desktop;
application/x-msdownload=wine.desktop;mount-archive.desktop;
application/vnd.ms-cab-compressed=file-roller.desktop;
Cheers,

Josh
