Cannot chnage Nautilus "File Management Preferences"

Hi,

I spent some time in order to find out how to change / add another
application from within the Nautilus Media Handling menu. My CD Audio
option shows for example “No application found” and is greyed out.

How can I change this configuration ?

Is the option ‘never prompt or start programs on media insertion’ ticked?
This disables all other options, so if it’s ticked, untick it to be able to set the others.

Cheers,
Wj

Thanks for the quick reply

Both options “Never prompt or start…” and “Browse media …” are
unticked. I would be able to change the setting for DVD Video, Photos,
Software but CD Audio and Music Player has the status “No applications
found”. I have no chance to manually change these entries and in addition
I do not know how the “nautilus-file-management-properties” identifies
possible applications. Using GConf did not give me the expected ideas

System (wide) defaults are kept in /var/cache/gio-2.0/defaults.list AFAIK.

I tried to find the file that gets changed within the home directory when changing one of the media handling settings… no luck in isolating it though.

Maybe try reinstalling totem and the totem plugin to see if that gives you your option back.

Others here might know where the config is kept and how to ’ unlock ’ the greyed out options…

Would be good to know,
