nautilus


ok
so i was lookin at file: filename.desktop (forgot the name, but the extensions all that matters)
and i asociated the .desktop extension with gedit
thought it was a good idea at the time...
well it wasnt because my home dir link on the desktop is a .desktop
so every time i click it i get gedit
so i associate it with nautilus again
i get an error every time i open a dir, but it still works
basically
im askin how i would disassociate gedit from the .desktop extension

Then have a look at: Applications - desktop preferences - advanced and then choose: File types and programs

Hope this helps,
