    How to set nautilus as default file manager again?

  • I have same behaviour but instead of pcmanfm, i have easytag (mp3 tag editor) that opens when I open a “Places Extension” directory…???

  • Me too. Easytag and Audacious are my new file managers

  • LMAO xD

    Archlinux x64

    AMD A4-3305M Processor
    6GB RAM
    1GB+512MB Hybrid AMD GPU

  • I am having the same problem. I fixed it by uninstalling audacious.

  • I know this is a older post, but I came across a similar issue and found a fix so hopefully this can help the next person.

    I installed easytag from repositories and then every program I used would open EasyTag as my file manger. After looking around and messing a bit, I found I had to only change two files.

    1. /usr/share/applications/easyshare.desktop
      Removed ‘inode/directory;’ from ‘MimeType=’ line
      Original:
    MimeType=inode/directory;audio/x-mp3;audio/x-mpeg;audio/mpeg;application/ogg;audio/xvorbis+ogg;audio/x-flac;audio/x-musepack;audio/x-ape;audio/x-speex+ogg;audio/x-opus+ogg;
    

    Now reads:

    MimeType=audio/x-mp3;audio/x-mpeg;audio/mpeg;application/ogg;audio/x-vorbis+ogg;audio/x-flac;audio/x-musepack;audio/x-ape;audio/x-speex+ogg;audio/x-opus+ogg;
    
    1. /usr/share/applications/mimeinfo.cache
      Removed ‘easytag.desktop’ from ‘inode/directory=’ line
      Original:
    inode/directory=easytag.desktop;org.gnome.Nautilus.desktop;
    

    Now reads:

    inode/directory=org.gnome.Nautilus.desktop;
    

    Haven’t had a problem since.
