"How (or WHERE and how) to set DEFAULT FILE MANAGER in CentOS 5.6 Fina
This is my first posting on this forum...
Being fairly new to Linux, I am currently running systems with Slackware 13.37 AND other machines with CentOS 5.6 Final. Here is my issue in a "nutshell":
On Slackware, there is a "settings" option that lets you select the DEFAULT APPLICATION to use as your preferred FILE MANAGER. I selected Konqueror quite easily for this purpose on my Slackware machine.
But, on CentOS, I have so far only found the place where you can select your preferred WEB BROWSER, EMAIL MANAGER and TERMINAL program. I do not know if (or WHERE) this is accomplished, or even if it is possible on CentOS. OR, is this done in the same way on all distros? I am really stuck here, as I do NOT like the default file manager of CentOS!
The answer to this question will probably lead me to a better understanding of the internals of Linux, which I am actively trying to discover via exploration.
Any help with this will be really appreciated!
Thanks in advance,

I never tried to switch the File Manager and you haven't said if you are running KDE or GNOME or something else.
Under KDE take a look at the Control Center under File Associations. Once there look at Media and switch what is listed there for one you prefer.
