Default file manager

Hi there,

I am running Debian Jessis with Gnome 3.14, I want to change the default file manager to Dolphin but couldn't find a way to do it, the system settings has no option for default file manager, I installed the tweak tool but no such option as well, I even modify the main menu file property to start up Dolphin but it still fire up Nautilus. The reason I like Dolphin is it support lot of extensions, so that I can easily email a file, bluetooth it to my phone or upload to Dropbox etc., if Nautilus offer such add on I've no problem stick with it, any comment ?

Default file manager

I'd look man xdg-mime or edit ~/.local/share/applications/defaults.list
