How to prevent 'eye of GNOME' from launching automatically?

Asked by hemantkarandikar on 2011-03-02

After I installed picasa, (I do not recall the options selected) I find that "eye of GNOME' launches itself, when I select home folder or another hard disk in the 'places' menu.

How do prevent the above application from launching? This happens even after I tried uninstalling picasa

I use Ubuntu 10.10

Does EoG launch *instead* of a Nautilus folder window when you select a location in the Places menu, or do you get both EoG and the Nautilus window? Does this happen when you double-click on folders inside Nautilus windows, too?

My answers:
1. Yes, EoG launches instead of Nautilus folder window when select a location in places menu.
2. I do not get any nautilus window.In I above.
3. After I open the Nautilus ( I have to right click and open a mounted drive icon for this) window I can open sub folders by double clicking.

Please let me know if any more information is needed.

Try the solutions suggested here:

If the first way doesn't work, then when you do the second way, you'll have to search for and remove the entry for eog, rather than for rhythmbox.

If those solutions don't work, please post again.

Yes this (the first way) worked.

Thanks so much.

This is what I did.

Open a file browser window (does "Places - Computer work? otherwise, press Alt+F2, type "nautilus" then press Enter).

Right-click a folder, select "Open with other application". Select "File Browser" and make sure "Remember the application..." is checked.
