    Question Can't open files directly from Chrome - opens Nautilus

    Hi,
    I'm having a problem with Ubuntu 11.10. I don't know what I did, but I can't open a file directly from my Google Chrome or Firefox download list.. it always opens Nautilus first at the file's folder, and then I need to find the file and open it.
    The same happens with other softwares such as Eclipse (I can't open directly my generated TexLipse PDFs) and this is really boring.
    I'd appreciate help Thank you in advance.

    I have no idea how it happened, but I was having the same problem and this seems to have fixed it:

    Remove or comment out (by adding "#" in front of the line)
    x-scheme-handler/file=exo-file-manager.desktop

    from this file:
    .local/share/applications/mimeapps.list

    Thanks for this fix, it works! I think it's because I installed Xubuntu desktop once.
