    gnome 3 MENU SELECTION ERRORS

    I appear to have two problems with menu selections.

    (1) A nautilus popup menu for a JPEG image shows GNU-GIMP as the default app, which If I select pulls up Shotwell instead. To actually use GIMP I must select it from "other applications"

    (2) Cairo-dock, after some time, launches the application ABOVE the icon I have selected.

    I am running 32 bit F!8 on a 64 bit DualCore AMD chip. Other problems with shell reboots and Cairo-Dock not responding ( at least visually ) may be due to the nvidia displayu driver.

    But the menu selection error sees to be a solveable problem with the shell?

    Anyone up to tackle it?

    Best Regards

    In System Settings > Details, there is the ability to configure default programs. By default, Shotwell is set, but you can change it to GIMP.

    Why are you running 32-bit OS on 64-bit hardware? If there is a 32-bit program you need, it will run on F18 64-bit.

    THANK YOU: Your answer corrected the error in gnome3.

    The bug with Cairo-Dock resets to functional after reboot.

    Best Regards
