    Set Nautilus as default in Fedora 29 Mate?

    I would prefer Gnome 3 Desktop on my MacBook 9.1 (Mid-2012). For some reason My Mac laptop refused to accept Fedora 29 WorkStation, I had to install Fedora 29 Mate instead and it is working so far so good.

    I would like to change my File Manager default from Caja to Nautilus. I know I can go to Control Panel >> Preference Applications >> System >> Files. But when I double click folder on the desktop it opens Caja file manager as default. I would like to open Nautilus as default.

    Thank you.

    Robert

    You could try to change the program for opening inode/directory mimetype. Be careful with it:
    https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Xdg-utils#xdg-mime .

    For example - as USER - not ROOT!
    Code:
    xdg-mime default org.gnome.Nautilus.desktop inode/directory
    Logout from system and log in. Test if it works. Changes are stored in file mimeapps.list.

    I did check the link and it seem might be dangerous to do that. I think I'll put with what Fedora 29 Mate has been set up. Thanks anyway.
    Current System: Fedora 29 Mate running on MacBookPro 91. (Mid-2012)
