I just noticed that installing software overrides distribution default handlers, example: After installing Libre Office “Writer” is now default app for handling plain text files (instead of Gedit), “Draw” becomes default handler for .PDF files (instead of Evince) etc.
Of course I can manually search for all type of files and “unset” these programs but I wonder is there any global solution for that?
Notice that even if I manually unset all these types using “Applications” settings in GNOME settings this applies only for my user, not for other users and not for root account. It’s kind of frustrating because sometimes I’m running Nautilus as root and all plain text files want to open via Libre Office Writer. And this also means that every time I want to install new software for something it overrides these settings again and it requires intervention.
Just wonder is there any “global” solution for that available? I didn’t experience this in other distros running GNOME3.
