cannot follow bookmarks in Main Menu (under "Places")

I am using Fedora 10 (64-bit) and I have the following situation:

Whenever I try to use a bookmark in the Main Menu (under "Places"), I get an error message. For example, if I want to open my Documents folder, the message reads:

"[STOP Sign] Could not open location 'file:///home/pilotferdi/Documents'

Failed to execute child process "/usr/bin/digikam" (No such file or directory)"
(I had digikam installed on my computer, then I decided to remove it.)

When I open a Nautilus file browser, and choose "Information" from the side pane, my home directory is listed with these three options (buttons) below:
1. Open with digikam
2. Open with Gwenview
3. Open with Open Folder

Somehow, the default choice, "Open with Open Folder" has been replaced with "Open with digikam", and I cannot access the bookmarks anymore. I think I need to make "Open with Open Folder" the default option when I click on a bookmark, but I don't know how to do it. I tried without success to use alacarte to make the changes. Any help is really appreciated.

Thanks !

Thanks, folks, you are of great help !

Three days later and 78 views after posting without ANY response, I figure it out:

1. Open a Nautilus (File Management) window - double-click on the Home folder. It doesn't matter if it displays the default listing or the browser.
2. Right-click on one of the listed folders (any folder will do).
3. Select "Properties". The folder Properties window opens, listing several (five in my version) tabs.
4. Select "Open With" tab. The tab reads: "Select an application to open <your folder> and other files of type "folder""
5. Select "Open Folder"
6. Click the "Close" button.

That's it !

I am posting my find in the hope it will be useful for those who encounter the same problem and same quiet answer.
