Changing xdg-open Default Applications

‎ XDG (freedesktop.org) which stands for X Desktop Group is a group which develop the X11 and xdg utilities which currently runs as barebones of linux desktop. Tools for xdg are already builtin and a few useful utilities like xdg-settings and xdg-mime. So to set the desired application to open a certain mime, one would do: xdg-mime default Thunar.desktop inode/directory The above sample command would add the new settings to ~/.local/share/applications/defaults.list which is defaulting opening directory to Thunar.

Let's Explore! Let's find some beautiful place and get lost.

It's 04:03 Tuesday, and I'm starting this blog. There are a lot of things currently bothering my mind, and sometimes I'm thinking of what the future will look like. Waiting till 10:00 to get onto my work and start doing some stuffs.

I've been a senior software engineer for quite a long time and somewhat I'm in the midst of internal debate whether this type of work makes me happy. I want to work for myself and earn of what I can do, create and live on things I like.
So today, I'm saying I need to go and get what makes me happy. I don't wanna grow old and regret a lot of things, go up the ladder and show them what you can do.
