I am on Manjaro with Cinnamon as DE, so I use Nemo as my file manager. Whenever I double-click markdown (
.md) files, I get a dialog asking if I want to execute the file or edit in a text editor. The default editor associated with
I understand that this is partly because the execute flag is set on the file; if I remove the execute permission the file opens in
Typora like I expect with no dialog prompt. However, this is not practical as a solution:
- Seems like Nemo creates files with execute set by default, so disabling it every time is tedious.
- I notice that some file systems don't seem to allow unsetting the execute flag, such as encrypted volumes.
- I may want to keep a file executable and have the default behavior be opening it in an editor.
Surely somewhere there must be a setting to the tune of "Default behavior for executable files: Display/Run/Ask". Where is this?
