PostPosted: Fri Aug 03, 2012 5:59 pm    Post subject: [Solved] File association question Reply with quote

How can I change a file's associated application? For example, when I try to open a PDF, Gimp opens and wants to import it. I do have Adobe Reader installed and can open the file with it, but right-clicking the file does not show any option for "Open with...".

Ideas :?:

Thanks,
~Mark

Sorry, should have thought of that. I use KDE.

Kickoff > System Settings > File Associations

Type "pdf" in the box "Find file type or filename pattern".

The rest should be self-explanatory.
