While browsing files in nautilus, I want to open a tex file with Kile. But, when I get to a dialog similar to the screenshot below, I do not see Kile. Yet, I see it in the “Open With” menu.
How do I fix this?
Here is Solutions:
We have many solutions to this problem, But we recommend you to use the first solution because it is tested & true solution that will 100% work for you.
In GNOME3 when apps that show on the right click Open With Other Application context menu but not on the right click Properties menu do so because the
Exec= line in the apps
.desktop doesn’t end with a %letter
That’s the case with Kile. The 2 most likely letters would be f or U, I’d try U first.
gksudo gedit /usr/share/applications/kde4/kile.desktop
Make the Exec= line look like this
Should then show (do a log out/in if needed)
Copied from my answer here.
An alternate method, (to set as default), on a per user basis would be to edit
[Default Applications] section you’d look for this line for plain text,
text/plain= and this line for LaTex files,
You’d edit either or both to set Kile as default as such
Note: Use and implement solution 1 because this method fully tested our system.
Thank you 🙂
