I tried to add an installed software to the "open with" other applications list that drops down after clicking on a photo to open but I never could. I installed Photoscape on my Linux Mint 16 system but it did not show in the list of choices to open a photo. I used some codes given to me from another website where I asked the same question but had no success. Now, the name photoscape.desktop is in the list but it is inactive. I want to make it my default viewer for photos. At the bottom under other applications it says you can add a custom command to add a software to the list and also make it your default viewer. I have no idea how to do this or where some folders are located in Linux Mint 16. I am new to Linux and don't know all the Linux tech talk, scripts or codes. So, things like creating shells, custom commands or other actions not needed in Windows is foreign to me, as it is any new Linux user. I also placed the question in the Linux Mint forums but got nowhere. I really need to talk to someone directly if possible who can answer this and other Linux questions as well.
