I've got two noob questions, but I can't find it easily, so I ask here... Forgive me.
First is this:
Whenever I open a file through - say - Open Office, the list of files I get shown automatically also show all the hidden files. Right click -> uncheck hidden files does the trick only for one session. If I hit Open again, they're shown again. How can I set it to not show hidden files by default in the 'open file' dialogue (for all apps)?
Second is this:
Under preferences, there's an item called 'preferred applications'. This is great, and works ok, but is way too general for me. How can I set that files with certain extensions always open with one app, and files with another extension always open with another app.
For example, how can I set that AVI's always open in VLC, but MPEGs in Movie Player. And MP3s with Songbird...
