using ubuntu 9.04 64bit on my desktop, firefox/edit/preferences/applications lists 'pls files' which I can assign to vlc player. It works, it is good. using ubuntu 9.04 i386 on my laptop, firefox/edit/preferences/applications does not list 'pls files' so I can not associate vlc player with 'pls files' . Where/how are the firefox/preferences/applications file types generated? Why are some files types listed and others not? How can I add or force 'pls files' to be listed in edit/preferences/applications so I can assign a program to open them?
