I use i3 desktop on Arch linux and I use nemo as file explorer. When in any application I use the option of show in file explorer, it pops up a browser window loading file://path/to/folder.

I'd like to configure system to use nemo instead.


You can call nemo with --no-desktop option:

nemo --no-desktop
  • This is a workaround and not a solution to change the default application for the mime type.
