    I think raleigh3 used that as a terminal command, which needless to say, can't find a file or folder by that name.

    @ raleigh3
    You were meant to look in the file I showed in post #3 ~/.config/mimeapps.list and see if it contained that line of text; it was not intended to be a command so please do what we are suggesting; read carefully and to avoid typo mistakes, use copy/paste.

    Like this?
    Code:
    dmn@Tyana-vm:~$ inode/directory
    bash: inode/directory: No such file or directory
    If so, it's not a valid command. I'm not sure how bash understands it.

    What you need to do is open the file (see post #11) in a text editor, copy all contents and post it between code tags in order to get recommendations on how to proceed.

    I did what you asked and got this.

    Code:
    image/jpeg=userapp-gimp-FN7PN0.desktop;eom.desktop;gimp.desktop;org.kde.kolourpaint.desktop;
    image/png=userapp-gimp-FN7PN0.desktop;eom.desktop;org.kde.kolourpaint.desktop;gimp.desktop;
    image/x-xcf=gimp.desktop;
    inode/directory=caja-folder-handler.desktop;gimp.desktop;
    image/tiff=userapp-gimp-FN7PN0.desktop;
    image/png=userapp-gimp-FN7PN0.desktop
    image/bmp=userapp-gimp-FN7PN0.desktop
    image/gif=userapp-gimp-FN7PN0.desktop

    image/jpeg=userapp-gimp-FN7PN0.desktop
    image/tiff=userapp-gimp-FN7PN0.desktop
    And there it is (in red). Just open this file in text editor, delete the text in red, save the file, and Gimp should be removed from the Preferred Applications for File Manager.

    This may require log out and log back or in, or rebooting, to take effect.
