Hello,

When I right click on an item I can open a file with the system editor.
Under Windows I could right click the desktop's file and set properties
and associate a file type to edit it with say gvim.

Now I am on Ubuntu Linux 11.10 and would like to set the default editor
to gvim rather than gedit. How can I accomplish this so that when I right
click on the file and open it with the system editor in eclipse I get gvim
instead of gedit?

Thanks,

John Goche

Switch from Unity back to Gnome and conduct business as it was before
Ubuntu slid into silly?

(With apologies.)
