Add the following line to the Default Applications section of the file ~/.local/share/applications/mimeapps.list

Tips and tricks

Nemo Actions

Nemo allows the user to add new entries to the context menu. The file /usr/share/nemo/actions/sample.nemo_action contains an example of a Nemo action. Places where to put custom action files:

  • /usr/share/nemo/actions/ for system-wide actions
  • $HOME/.local/share/nemo/actions/ for user actions

Pay attention to the name convention. Your file has to preserve the file ending .nemo_action.

for arg in sys.argv:
    if filename == arg:
        continue
    else:
        print arg
        #os.rename('%s','%s.archive') % (arg,arg)
        shutil.move(arg, arg+".archive")
