Hi, running VUE 3.0 on openSUSE Linux 12.2 with KDE desktop.

I'm just starting to experiment with this program. I'm interested in the ability to embed links to PDFs, image, etc. which is important for my use of this tool.

When I link to a jpg file, and then click on it, it opens in the GIMP image manipulation program. However, I have my file associations set up to associate jpgs with Gwenview, an image viewer, as the highest priority.

The problem might be with my file associations in KDE but I don't see how. I even removed GIMP as an option for the KDE file association to *.jpg files and all jpgs still open in it.

Can it be that VUE has the GIMP hard coded as the image display program? Is there a way to change this?

It's worse than I thought. I removed the GIMP from ALL image file associations - it still opened a jpg in GIMP.

So I uninstalled GIMP completely.

Now it opens a jpg in another program altogether!

So it's not VUE's fault - it's a broken file association involving Gwenview in openSUSE 12.1 for no known reason.

So you can disregard this.
