I'm getting permission denied errors when I try to change mime types / default application in XFCE4. If I use sudo for permissions, it's changing the defaults for root and not for my normal user.

Any ideas?

Please check the owner and permissions of ~/.local/share/applications/mimeapps.list file (and the directories as well) :)

solved by taking ownership of the ~/.local/share/applications folder
