Ubuntu: How do I get .xcf files to open in GIMP instead of Inkscape by default?


For some reason, whenever I double-click a .xcf file in Nautilus or open it from the Dash, the file tries to load in Inkscape (with an error message) instead of in GIMP by default. I have both applications installed and I am using Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.

How do I get these files to open in GIMP by default instead?


Right click on the file go to properties, then "open" or "open with" (Haven't used GNOME in a while). Then choose GIMP as your standard and press ok.


You can make a right click on that file, choose "properties" and then the tab "open with", there you can choose GIMP as standard application.
