    Default easytag taking over...

    I was looking for a nice mp3 tagger and found this thread... as a result of recommendations I installed easytag...

    the program is nice and all but after installing it and running it once, the places menu in my gnome menu bar open IN easytag... like it has become the default app over nautilus.

    I note, I can still open nautilus in terminal, and even if I open folders from the desktop... It appears to just affect the Places menu...

    suggestions? I mean... OTHER than remove easytag?

    Bumping to say I've got the same problem. Does anyone have a solution for this? The gnome menu editor allows editing of the Applications and System but not the Places menu. (Why?)

    Unhappy Re: easytag taking over...

    I have a very similar problem: "Open containing folder" in Firefox after a download will open the directory in Easytag, which is really annoying.

    I found that problem in Suse10.3/KDE3 (only less than months ago) and now again in Suse11.1/KDE4, but I only noticed that Firefox was affected.

    So something is strange with a more recent version of EasyTag, for I had it previously (i.e. >6 months ago) working fine...

    I got it working, but I don't know if it's just coincidence, or if YaST is doing something funny.
    I uninstalled easytag using YaST, and re-installed it using the one-click on Packman's website.
    The one-click uses the YaST Meta-package installer, and I don't know if that's same program with the same scripts that runs from Software Management.
    Anyway, now when my wife clicks on Eigene Bilder she gets a file manager rather than easytag, and I can still use easytag to write playlists for my Sansa Clip.

    Oops, missed the edit window.

    I remembered while cooking dinner that YaST runs SuSEconfig at the end of software installation. I don't think this happens when using one-click. That would be a clue, if anyone wants to pursue this further. I don't have the skills to do so, or the time to acquire them right now.

    Thumbs up Re: easytag taking over...

    Hi,

    I found a solution via a RedHat-Bug Report which shows me the right way. It seems that Firefox is not using the KDE mime type definitions but using the one in /usr/share/applications/defaults.list. Here you can find an entry
    x-directory/normal=easytag.desktop
    . I made a symlink from /usr/share/applications/kde4/dolphin.desktop to /usr/share/applications/dolphin.desktop and changed the entry in the "defaults.list" file to
    x-directory/normal=dolphin.desktop
    . Now Firefox opens the right directory in dolphin when you choose "open containing folder" in Firefox`s download Manager.

    I dont know which software-Installation or update will broke this and change the entry in defaults.list, but so long it will hopefully work.
