Gnome -> Places -> Home opening in VLC

Gnome 3.38.1 + VLC 3.0.11

In Gnome opening Places -> Home starts in VLC rather than Files. Uninstalling VLC reverts the behavior. How to resolve or specify the default application for Home -> Places?

Re: Gnome -> Places -> Home opening in VLC

You need to explicitly set your intended default applications to not have them be overriden by package advertising support for something. GNOME settings should have a menu for that.

Otherwise see https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Xdg-utils#xdg-open you'll need to set the default for the inode/directory MIME type
