    Question Opening .jpgs to Gimp.

    When I open a .jpg file, it opens with The GNOME image viewer.
    I would like to setup GIMP as the default viewer for .jpgs

    Where do I set the default program to open up a certain type of file?

    FOUND THE ANSWER!!


    When you double-click a file, a default action is executed.
    (For example, if you double-click a .jpg file, it is the image viewer "Eye of Gnome" which is launched).

    It is very easy to change the default actions.
    • Right-click on a file type (e.g, .jgp) and select "Properties"
    • Go to the tab "Open With" and choose the program to use (for example, The Gimp).
