changing default file associations in gnome 3

How do I change the default file associations in F15/gnome 3? My system is currently set to open .tex files with emacs. But I prefer TeXworks, and while TeXworks shows up in the "Open With" menu, it would be convenient if double-clicking on a tex file opened it in TeXworks. In gnome2, the "Open with-->Other application" option let me select the default program associated with a particular type of file, but this functionality seems to be gone in Gnome 3. Do I have to edit some config file?

I have the same question, I use Mathematica software but I can't asign *.nb files with the program, it even doesn't appear on the Applications part of the shell.

Right-click->Properties->Open With->Set as default (lower right). I don't know how to do it if the application you want to use doesn't show up.

I would attach a screenshot but it is 13px too tall

Re: changing default file associations in gnome 3

Hello, I have a little bit bigger problem. I want to associate .mkv with xine. However xine-ui is not listed in applications list for associations (it's listed in menus etc.).
Does anyone have an idea dow to do that?

Re: changing default file associations in gnome 3

I also want to open a file with a program that is locally installed and I open it via command line. I don't have the option to put the path of the program to open the file like in gnome 2 ("use custom command"). Is there a workaround to this problem??

Cheers,
Germán.

- First look for the program (.desktop) in /usr/share/applications.
- Edit the program file so that the Exec line looks like:
Exec=yourprogram %U
- Now the program should show up in application list
