[solved] wrong links

Postby Maroman » 06 Sep 2014, 08:39

recently I have a case of wrong links, namely when I try to open trash or dropbox it starts with vlc (clicking icons on the panel) - see the screenshot

it's not a big problem but a little annoying (especially for dropbox). how to remove these links and restore to standard ones? I can't find the way at the moment.

I had a similar problem with Places going to home, desktop and computer. I got it fixed, but can't remember what I did to correct it. Let you know if it comes to me, but I did get it fixed.

Jim, fyi. I've solved the problem :Yahoo!: . pls look at ~/.local/share/applications/mimeapps.list.
in my system it's as follows
Code: Select all
[Default Applications]
inode/directory=vlc.desktop

[Added Associations]

interesting. the second line is strange (my son is so clever boy). I've deleted the file and all has gone. works in normal way.
