Hi Kevin, I think what you ask is not possible. Or at least not without some custom code. What you describe is the right behavior: you select a folder, so your system selects the folder with the default app to show folders.
Changing this is not trivial. You could of course make the terminal the default app for opening folders, but that would not only affect zim but also the rest of your desktop environment. The best next thing is to link to folders as URLs with a custom URL scheme - e.g. "term://". When you type a link like that in zim, you can go to the "open with" menu in the context menu to define an application to open these links. Either that, or patching zim to implement a preference setting that allows changing the default folder app. Regards, Jaap On Fri, Oct 9, 2015 at 10:45 PM, Chris Habasinski <cjh...@gmail.com> wrote: > Hi > > I think you want to look at the gui/applications.py code. > It looks like it uses xdg and mime-types to figure this out - and allows > you to create custom types. > > Chris > > > > On 10/09/2015 04:32 PM, Kevin Reynolds wrote: > > If I am not asking this question properly please let me know and I will > re-ask properly. > > I am on a Linux Ubuntu system. > > When I click on a link to a folder, on any zim notebook page, zim launches > 'files', my system default file manager. > > I have searched my brains out and cannot find where, in what file, that > link association is.
