Netrunner Home

(SOLVED) YEAH Gimp help opens Okular


#1

Hello
First up thanks for providing Netrunner Rolling and NR is a strong distro but you know that already,
I’ve been able to sort out and get all the packages I needed language packs and gimp plug-ins etc but there is one thing I cannot seem to fix when in gimp clicking F1 and shift F1 or top menu help items I get okular opening instead of firefox
checked up on all the properties boxes and setting I could think of - seems ok ?
when okular opens it’s with blank pages or code of some form not the help manual

What have I missed

Thanks in advance


#2

That is strange.
On my personal system It’s opening in Falcon even though Plasma has firefox set as default.

Maybe it’s the gtk setting?


#3

Hmm, HandBrake is doing the same things.


#4

Yeah strange alright my default apps setting page same as yours ,
which gtk setting are you taking about ? ,
Thanks for the fast reply


#5

Sorry for my ignorance But what is HandBrake


#6

That’s what I’m trying to figure out.
I did rule out that it’s not xdg:

$ xdg-settings get default-web-browser
firefox.desktop

Have you checked your ~/.config/mimeapps.list?
Mine was fine though, everything there the appropriate mime types are set to Firefox.


#7

It’s the same results here


#8

[fa@fa-pc ~]$ sudo ~/.config/mimeapps.list
[sudo] password for fa:
sudo: /home/fa/.config/mimeapps.list: command not found
[fa@fa-pc ~]$

That my results


#9

~/.config/mimeapps.list is a file not an applications.
It’s in the hidden folder .config in your home directory.
You can open it with kate, no need for sudo.


#10

I’m not sure what I should be looking for
can I post the mimeapps.list its small ?


#11

Yes you may, just be sure use a code box (aka preformatted text) to copy and paste it.

BTW, you have to indent preformatted text by 4 spaces for every line…


#14

Sorry I thought I did ,
Those removed sections is not something I did … knowingly
That’s why I got you to look at the file
How and why that is I dont know , not much help I am


#15

That’s OK. I should be in bed asleep.
Especially with all these meds the doctor has me on right now. :wink:


#16

Tell you what Leave this for another day ,go get some rest, and this can wait , youre health is more important than a gimp help file ,OK see ya ,go get some rest !


#17

That’s the thing, I should be tired, but I’m not and can’t fall asleep.
Trust me, I’ve tried. I was already in bed with absolute darkness, and no noise whatsoever for 4 hours.


#18

Ooh I know this one - go in and rest - eyes closed and stay there for an hour - sometimes I need to do that cos my meds get changed a lot and I get that effect , I have a lot of health problems , Go on just rest , lets the body catch up seriously it does world of good .
ps. you will heal up better that way


#19

I don’t remember where I got this but it’s awesome


#20

Nice, I like it.

OK, double clicking on htm, html, etc. does indeed open in Firefox.
So, this makes it a gnome (gio) issue.
Run gio mime text/html.
I got the following:

Default application for “text/html”: org.kde.falkon.desktop
Registered applications:
	org.kde.falkon.desktop
	libreoffice-writer.desktop
	org.kde.kate.desktop
	okularApplication_txt.desktop
Recommended applications:
	org.kde.falkon.desktop

This must be a bug because according to the following ~/.config/mimetypes.list should take precedence.
