Hi, I’m trying to restore default filetypes associations without success. After I installed libreoffice I noticed that anything I was usual to open by gedit (ie .c source files) now is opened by Libreoffice Writer.
I checked

  • /usr/share/applications/defaults.list
  • /etc/gnome/defaults.list
  • .local/share/applications/mimeapps.list

and there isn’t any “text/***” associated with Writer!
[…]
I found the bug!
There is no more the gedit.desktop file, now is org.gnome.gedit.desktop. It seems like a bug, defaults.list should be updated… Is the same for you?

PS: why do we need /etc/gnome/defaults.list?
