attachment, my only option is to open with GIMP. the dialog box does
not allow me to choose another application besides GIMP, which is the
default. How do I configure thunderbird so that I can choose the
application to open, or else set pdf files to open with okular?
file type to the content type column on the attachments? There is no
way to make a new entry. I assume that there is some way, but it isn't
showing up on my screen.
made the first time a particular file with a given extension not defined
in "System Settings--->File Associations"
Sorry, that should have been....
"Personal Settings--->File Associations"....
Remember, there are 2 ways to define what applications are used. By
MIME type and file extension....
Anyway, if you search for pdf in File Associations you would/could find
that the choices are set to Okular and GIMP with Okular being at the
top. If you don't have Okular installed...but have GIMP installed....it
will be called.
You can make changes here as well as in Thunderbird.
For example, send yourself a file with a weird extension, xxx.ase3, for
example. When the email arrives you should see a the attachment name on
the left side of the preview pane and a > character just to the left.
Click on that and it will be expanded. Double click on that attachment
name and you'll get a dialog box where you can assign the application to
handle the file. Checking the "Do this automatically...." box will then
add that action to the table.
