OpenSUSE :: Applications Missing From KDE Menu And File Associations Is Not Working?

Feb 17, 2011

Only "Favourites", "Run Command" and "Leave" is shown on the classic KDE menu, same thing when switching to Launcher Menu Style. Missing Applications and everything else. File associations is not working. Double clicking any type of file it asks to install the program and the known applications menu is empty.

I tried to add a new user, same problem with that. I also noticed that when running Chrome it asks to be the default web browser each time even when I say yes.

I have not been messing with anything, I suspect it happened during a update, but I got the exact same repositories on 2 other x64 machines where there is no problem.

I'm using KDE 4.6.0 from the factory repository.

I tried to reinstall some KDE4 packages without any luck.

I do not want to reinstall the entire system or downgrade KDE.

Fedora :: Cannot Change Default Applications Or File Associations

Jun 15, 2011

I recently upgraded to Fedora 15 and am super-happy with it. Unfortunately, I have a minor issue that I haven't yet figured out how to fix: I can't change the default applications or the file type associations. For instance, I'd like to set Chromium as my default browser. When I first login, I tell it to set itself as default. But after I end my session and log back it, Firefox is back to being the default browser.

I have the same issues when trying to change what applications open filetypes. .rtf files have been opening in Wordpad in Wine. When I try to change it to Writer through the "Open with" dialog, it retains the change for that session but resets after I log out. I actually ended up having to uninstall Calibre because it was opening .odt files instead of LibreOffice and I couldn't change it permanently.

Ubuntu :: File Menu Not Visible For All Applications

Nov 25, 2010

Applications working properly with SUDO only UBUNTU Noteboox 10.10 XUBUNTU I recently installed Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick notebook version on my HP Compaq nc6400 (Intel core2 CPU T5600@1.83GHZ). Later installed Xfce4. So, I am now on Xubuntu on top of Ubuntu (it seems).Coming to my problem, even though application working fine normally, Menu is not displayed in most of the applications. Ex: Transmission, GIMP, Mousepad, Pinta, gedit ........ No application shows the file,edit.. menus.

Also file sharing is also not possible in normal mode. When I right click on any folder or file sharing option is not visible. But if I run these applications with SUDO the menus are appearing. When I open nautilus with SUDO , I am able to get sharing options in right click. I tried the below command as advised in thread.php?p=6474144 But it failed

Ubuntu :: Can't Find File-roller In Xubuntu Applications Menu?

Jun 3, 2011

find file-roller (aka 'Archive Manager') in xubuntu's Applications menu. I surely have it; it is the default application for opening archives, I can invoke it from the terminal but I can't just... run it from the Applications drop-down.I even tried the Application Finder with no luck using the keywords file-roller, archive, file, roller, .zip. .tar, etc. No luck.Can anyone else find it on their Applications dropdown menu? Or at least tell me that they can't find it either?I'm curious if I have some configuration glitch, or if this is a bug, or maybe there's just something in the water here.

Software :: Gnome With Associated Applications For Registered File Types / Cant See Apps From "open With" Menu When Right Click To A File?

Oct 6, 2010

I am using Ubuntu 10.04 with Gnome 2.30.

I remove the applications which i don't use from main-menu. Now i can not see them from "open with" menu when i right click to a file.

Also it will be very nice if Ubuntu can show me on the "open with" menu the possibilities of applications which can open properly the file type which i want to open. I try to configure with ubuntu-tweak's "file type manager" but it is not possible to configure all of file types. I think Ubuntu's applications must to know which applications has to show for which file types. And i don't know how to do that. I need an application like this : url

I get a new user from the same OS, and i see that the same problem still there... For example many many compressed files, audio or graphic files are not associated with vlc or gimp.

I try to configure from system files of gnome but it is very complicated.

OpenSUSE :: 11.4 - KDE Applications Missing Their Icon PNG Files

Mar 11, 2011

I run a OpenSUSE 11.4 64 bit with Gnome & KDE desktop. When I run my Gnome desktop all my KDE applications are missing their usr/share/icons/hicolor/48*48/apps/nameofapplication.png picture. The KDE applications work, and when I go to that destination file the png. picture is present. When I run a KDE environment, my KDE applications (that are missing in Gnome) have their icon 48*48 picture. Any idea why when running the Gnome environment, there is a missing path to the png. file for only the KDE applications?

OpenSUSE :: Cleaner Applications Menu With Alacarte?

Is there a way to clean up OpenSuse's applications menu with alacarte? It takes forever for me to find an existing menu item if I want to change or delete it, but deleting existing pre-defined groups (such as "Amusement", "Art and Culture", and "Games for Kids") doesn't work. They simply won't delete.

Fedora :: No KDE File Associations?

Jun 18, 2011

Yesterday on my laptop I minimized Konqueror file browser and did something else for 10 minutes. When I went back to Konqueror no files would open; any file type asked for an app to use.

I found even in KDE settings/file associations everything had disappeared. No file type any longer has an app associated with it. Worse, if I assign one it doesn't 'take'. I haven't deleted anything or installed/updated anything, and I restored ~/kde/share/apps and ~/kde/share/config from backups but no joy.

I figure I may have a corrupted or missing data file, but which one?

Fedora :: File Browser Missing From FC 13 System Tools Menu?

Aug 18, 2010

I installed Fedora Core 13 x86-64 from the installation DVD and picked the "Software Development" installation. I notice that the Applications->System Tools menu doesn't have "File Browser" on it.

Nautilus is installed, so I can create a launcher for it. I'm merely curious whether this is a change or bug in FC 13? Or should I suspect that I myself deleted the file browser launcher accidentally? The machine is a laptop and I find the mousepad awkward to use.

OpenSUSE :: Applications Launched From Gnome Menu Are Not Always Visible

Mar 26, 2011

I have a clean install of openSUSE 11.4 64 bit using gnome as the desktop manager. When selecting applications from the gnome menu, randomly the application will appear to not launch. However, if I click anywhere in left, upper portion of my desktop it becomes obvious that the application has launched and is not visible. For example, yast will not appear but clicking in that portion of my desktop causes various windows to appear that correspond to the different options in the yast home screen.

OpenSUSE :: Left Over Icons In Applications Menu After Uninstall?

Jul 6, 2011

I uninstalled Google Earth and the "grey" icon remains no matter what I do. Also I had wine to run an MS application I uninstalled wine, before uninstalling the application. The icons remain, do I need to re-install wine again, uninstall the application then uninstall wine? The file that held the application I deleted, first because I had a brain fade.

Software :: KDE/Nautilus File Associations?

Jan 4, 2010

I know Dolphin/Konqueror is the manager of choice while in KDE, but I prefer Nautilus, mostly because I'm used to it. If I launch either a pure Openbox or Gnome session, Nautilus works perfectly fine. If I launch a KDE or KDE/Openbox session, Nautilus seems to 'forget' all the file associations for... well, pretty much everything. Thumbnail image previews and the mouse-over playing of audio files also seems to have stopped working, though these I can live without.

I looked into how Openbox handles it, and it seems to be that it launches 'Gnome services' to allow it, but I've not found exactly what those are, or how to launch them within KDE to fix Nautilus.

This is on Debian Lenny, with the KDE 4.3 repository containing the backport for Lenny enabled.

Debian :: Chromium And Thunar Use Different File Associations?

Mar 16, 2016

For some time (I don't remember exactly how long/since when, maybe since I switched to i3 window manager?) I have the problem from title.

Chromium browser uses completely different programs to open files than file browser (thunar). And most of the time thunar has associations I want. For example thunar opens PDFs with iceweasel, and chromium opens them with GIMP (!), note that I have never changed this king of settings. Until I changed it today chromium also used Baobab (I didn't even know it existed before I saw it) to open directories ("show file in directory" for downloaded files).

I know how to change for a single file type (at least for browser), but is there some way to set all file types to something sensible and keep both, browser and thunar in sync without doing all of that manually? Or at least revert it all to default?

Debian version: latest "testing" version. (I use testing because I really need up to date versions of a lot of programs)...

General :: How File Associations Management Implemented

Ubuntu :: File Type Associations Broken?

Feb 1, 2010

I am unable to double-click a file of a given type, e.g. .pdf, and have it open in the appropriate application. While some file types have the correct associations, others do not, and I am unable to assign apps for some file types.

An example is Adobe portable document files ending in .pdf. If I right-click on a .pdf in Nautilus, and select "Open with," I get a dialog containing two tabs. One lists applications already associated with that file type, which at present is blank. The other tab seems as if it should allow me to assign an application to that file type, but when I click it, the dialog simply closes suddenly, as if crashing.

What is going on here, and how do I fix it?

(Ubuntu 9.10 64-bit)

Ubuntu :: Restore Default Kde File Associations?

Jun 7, 2010

i initially installed ubuntu, working with gnome for a while. i now migrated to kde as i like it better. however, the kde session still has lots of the "old" file associations set as they are in gnome...

some examples? text files open in gedit, instead of kate pdfs open in "document viewer" instead of okular double clicking zip folder opens the "archiver" (gnome?), extracting an archive from the archiver and then pressing the "open folder" dialog after extracting has finished, opens nautilus (although dophin is the default program for inodes). etc.

i'm aware of the possibility to edit file associations, however thats a tedious thingy to do, if you want to get it complete... furthermore, the file association edit dialog has the "defaults" button disabled, hence my questions:

is there any way to "restore" the kde default file associations, just as i would have installed kubuntu initially? i don't want to reinstall just because of this.

Ubuntu :: Nautilus Ignores File Associations?

Apr 19, 2011

I have my default text files (also source codes etc.) associated with gedit (checked with ubuntu tweak).However, nautilus tries it to open with some "notepad" - dunno what it is I don't even have such a program. Files are OK, opening them directly from gedit or vim is fine.Some weird things:- nautilus correctly displays gedit icon- I have dualboot system with windows 7 and notepad command looks like it came from "there"- when I click on open with -> gedit, file is correctly open. However this option is not remembered by nautilus (even though I checked it as always open with ...)- nautilus (after clicking on open with) also suggest to use some "iexplore" command, I totally don't have idea where that came from Any suggestions? I really don't feel like using another file manager, but opening text files is pretty elementeray action and should work properly
