<SOLVED>complete Preferred Applications
« on: May 14, 2019, 05:30:59 pm »
On Cinnamon, there's an application called Preferred Applications which allows me to set just about every default. However, on Sparky LXDE, there are only two settings, browser and mail client. Where can I set default text editor and music player?

You can right click on an audio or video (or text) file, choose Properties and choose you favorite application to open a specific type of file.

There is also:
Code: [Select]
$HOME/.config/mimeapps.listwhich lets you manually set your favorite applications.
