OpenSUSE :: Default Programs To Open File Types In LXDE?
Nov 30, 2010
i've iregulare situation here i use LXDE and when i use chromium (for ex)and download a jpg file and then open it it starts FIREFOX and then asks me to open it i want chromium (for ex) to open that file type directly with images viewer another example when i installed awn and made some favorite applications shortcut on it when i try to open those shortcuts it opens firefox again and ask me to download or open O_O how can i remove firefox from all this proccess ?
I have been using OpenSuse 11.4 LXDE version for about 6-8 months. All worked fine. I noticed a few days ago that my file manager would not start from the tool-bar menu. I went to the kick of menu to find "File Manager" under system tools and it would not start from there either. I created a new folder on the desktop and tried opening it - it would not open. I can only assume its some sort of a bug and most likely occurred because of the recent computer update (I get regular notifications to update my system so I do it).
I'm using Grsync and I want to be able to plug in any drive into my laptop and run rsync on it to back up all the user documents on there to another external hdd and to exclude everything else. Working on the principle that user documents don't always appear where we'd expect I want rsync to look through the whole drive and filter what it backs up by file type. I am only having partial success, however.
I am using the 'filter' option in the 'additional options' box. I am using the command Code: filter='merge /home/tim/Desktop/filter' and I am attaching the filter file I have written. (I have added the .txt extention to upload it).
I have tested this script on my home folder and here's what's going wrong. Rsync will copy the entire directory structure regardless of whether there are any files to be copied over in those directories. I am also getting only some file types getting included and not others. .odt and .ods files are copied, for instance, but not .doc or .rtf.
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.
I have just installed SABnzb application in my home folder. The executable file is SABnzb.py When I run the command in the Konsole # python SABnzb.py I have this Quote: python: can't open file 'SABnzbd.py': [Errno 2] No such file or directory
The Ext 4 file system of the partition (dev/sdb1) is corrupted. When I seek to repair this using the boot repair tool it is unable to resolve this. I admit that I don't fully understand the problem - except that I'm unable to open and use programs.
I don't have wine installed. But I use teamviewer [URL] to remote support my friends. Teamviewer provide an "linux version" using wine wrapper. Every time I run it, some mime types such as .jpg, .wmv, .txt, .ini, v.v... was set to be handle by a "A Wine application". So, nothing happen when I open those file, I have to reset their handler to proper linux application.
1. How can I completely remove those "A wine application" handler? Is there a tool, or a settings applet in gnome that allow me to do that. Currently, I have to find those files in nautilus, right click and change the open with settings, that's frustrated.
2. Can I lock mime type handling settings from being changed by some application? Or even lock it from any changed at all? I don't mind remove the write permission from some settings file, I won't likely to change my current mime type handling settings in near future.
I'm having some really odd problems with Nautilus. The main one is that most of the time, files of various types are not assigned to be opened with the proper app, and I cannot assign an app. I described this problem in another thread: If I right click a .pdf for example, and select "Open With," the first two suggestions (Leafpad and gedit) are wrong. If I choose instead "Open with another program," I get a dialog with two tabs. One is "Recommended Applications" and is blank. The other is "All Applications." If I click "All Applications," instead of getting a list of apps or having the opportunity to choose one from /usr/bin, the entire dialog disappears abruptly. I'd say that's a "crash."
I would like port 80 to have a small daemon running on it that detects HTTP traffic and sends a small redirect response, and any other traffic begins streaming data from my VPN daemon. I was wondering if this has already been made, or any kind of technology for detecting types of traffic and allowing you to run multiple types of servers on the same port.
I am using nx client and I would like to ask your help. Is it possible when I connect from home to my work's computer (using nx client) to see the exactly same desktop-taskbar and open programs as I left them in my work computer.
Imagine that you are at work using your computer. You lock the keyboard and you go home(you didn't turn it off). You go home and you login to work's computer. What I want to see is the same if I was just unlocking works's computer. IS that possible and how?
I'm running various ubuntu guests but I had a question about Lubuntu. How or where do I change the default behaviour when I dbl-click the title bar in LXDE? Right now it maximizes/minimizes the window. I would prefer it roll up/down.
Swiftfox does not have default file handling, and thus I cannot open files from the download menu. When I go to choose the program I want to open the file with, it just takes me to my Home folder in Nautilus. I have no idea where to find the programs I need (Image Viewer, Open Office, and Movie Player are the main ones I need).
I have got Ubuntu with Xfce installed, and I would like to change default session to Gnome, or LXDE (depending on if my computer would run it properly). Looks like there is no options button while logging in, or anything similar.
I'm having sporadic issues with the openoffice.org program. Sometimes, power point presentations will crash the program and then I can't open any open office programs without rebooting the computer. The problem seems to be just with powerpoint files and I'm not sure what the issue could be.
Is there a way to set the default when clicking on a folder to open in new window? The default action appears to open in the same window. I've gone though every Dolphin option I can find, and there does not appear to be any setting that affect this. Konqueror DOES have a setting, but it seems to be ignored. I am running Suse 11.3, KDE 4.4.
I would like to make LXDE the default desktop for ALL USERS on my LTSP clients. There are about 60 users so far.On my server, LXDE is default for everyone.But on the clients, each user has to change to LXDE individually. How can I make LXDE default on all clients?I've been looking through the forums all day, but could not find an answer to this question, so hopefully we can get an answer and my title will help others.
I hope this is in the right spot. I need some help editing my .vimrc file. I want to edit it so that if I create a .cpp file, it will turn on cindent, and if I create a .asm file, it will turn on regular autoindent and set ft=nasm so Vim uses NASM syntax highlighting. How do I go about doing this?
