I would like to change WPS office's presentation the default viewer instead of LibreOffice in my system. However, it could not find anything related to it in Search and not by TweakTool. One-liner would be great for the task.

Testing GAD3R's proposal

The only limiting factor is the capability now to call the application (WPS presentation). You can call WPS writer by wps but nothing else came with the application package. I sent a question about it in their Linux forum but waiting their approval.

System: Debian 8.5 64 bit
Window manager: Gnome 3.14


Create a new configuration file defaults.list under /usr/share/applications

Add your favorite application using the following format:

[Default Applications]

There is an example:

[Default Applications]

Verify it using xdg-open (as user):

xdg-open myfile.ppt

The list of the default application is sorted here:/usr/share/applications/mimeinfo.cache


To launch wps presentation from the terminal , just type : wpp

  • The open question here is how to launch wps-presentation in terminal. There is wps which is for their writer. I sent the question to their forum and will be notified when it is accepted. – Léo Léopold Hertz 준영 Sep 11 '16 at 16:47
