    Where does nautilus keep file association info?


    In the nautilus file manager you can specify "open with" a specific application. Then when you doub le click a file having that extension, the program that you specified opens it.

    My question is where does nautilus keep that information. Is there some conf file somewhere that I can look at?

    After further review, the answer seems to be the file:

    ~/.local/share/applications/mimeapps.list
