How To Set the Default App For Opening a Directory Under OpenBSD + Gnome 3

Thu 09 September 2014 #openbsd

Sometimes you want ‘open .’ to open a directory in your favorite GUI file manager, not EasyTag. Sometimes you wonder how EasyTag ever come to be the default app for opening a folder. Sometimes you do this:

$ xdg-mime query filetype .
inode/directory
$ xdg-mime query default inode/directory
easytag.desktop
$ xdg-mime default nautilus.desktop inode/directory
$ xdg-mime query default inode/directory
nautilus.desktop
$ open .

You’re welcome.
