View Full Version : [xubuntu] File Type Associations

December 4th, 2009, 07:23 PM
If I right-click on a file type, e.g. .xls, then choose a program to open that file, it never "sticks", i.e. after a reboot it doesn't know what app to use for the file type.

A fix?

Are you right-clicking, going to preferences, preferred applications (I think it's called?) and choosing an app? or just going to "open with"?

I right-click, then go to "Properties", then "Open With"

I choose my application, in this case Lotus Symphony, and Close.

Next reboot, it looses that association.
