A few files are defaulting to the wrong application. Updated Utopic Xubuntu install


torrents are defaulting to open with Archive Manager

mp3's are currently defaulting to Easytag.

For mp3 /usr/share/applications/mimeinfo.cache originally was audio/x-mp3=parole.desktop

I have since installed Clementine, Soundconverter and Easytag in that order.

mimeinfo.cache now shows


removing all except clementine makes no difference to what shows on the right click open with menu's

pdf's were defaulting to Gimp. I edited /usr/share/applications/mimeinfo.cache to remove gimp which worked for that
