Run Program from Browser/File Manager
Ok, I am pretty new to Linux, and I am having a problem finding programs from the File Explorer. I am currently using Ubuntu.
The real problem I am having is that when I download a file (such as a torrent) and I want to open it with a different program than the default (I want KTorrent instead of BitTorrent). When I pick choose program it takes me to a file explorer. I type in the name of the program (KTorrent) and it says:
"The application you chose ("(null)") could not be found. Check the file name or choose another application."
I get the same message when I copy the command from the link (torrent %i %m -caption "%c" %u) and try to execute that.
So, where is the directory of executables? Where do I need to point Firefox? And how do I change the default for opening different file types? I tried "Preferred Applications" but this only lets me change my browser, email client, and terminal emulator.
