[ jEdit-users ] Daily build - file association

Sarah Cranston
How do I set up my Windows file associations when using a daily build?
I followed the steps online, going thru the file settings for that
file extension and selecting jedit.exe, but nothing happened and
Windows still associates that file with another program. I'm on
Windows 7.

What steps did you follow? Here's a link to MS that tells how to do it, is this the same one you used?

What I do is use the windows installer that is officially released to set the file associations.
I install it to c:\jEdit so it doesn't go into C:\Program Files. That way I have file permissions already.

Then I use the java .jar installer to upgrade over that with 5.4.

Re: [ jEdit-users ] FW: Daily build - file association

In reply to this post by Dale Anson-3

I think 5.4.0 should be released ASAP.

If not for anything else then to resolve broken plugin install/update mechanics…

 

OT question; jEdit being excelent editor, are there any plans to make it „prettyer“?

Metal is outdated and other lafs have problems, all of them; „windows“ has repainting problems on window/component resize; Nimbus has broken buttons( to small?) and weird sized scroolbars, „motif“ is plain ugly and all other from coresponding look&feel plugin have problems or are just weird/ugly.

 

So, such a great editor and it looks plain bad L

 

Tnx!

Dalibor, have you tried the Substance look and feel? I think it looks quite nice and I use it all the time. It's distributed as a separate plugin that integrates with the Look and Feel plugin.

Which particular file extension are you trying to associate? There's a registry modification that's needed for certain filetypes, when launched from certain programs (if, for instance, the association works correctly from Explorer but not any other programs)

Xsl. It's very odd: even when I browse to and select jedit.exe, jedit still doesn't appear in the list of programs I can use to open the file. But, I see that 5.4.0 is out, so all should be well once I get that set up :)

Xsl is one of those text formats about which Windows seems to have opinionated behavior.

I've found that this registry modification often works (info taken from [here]):
  1. Open Registry Editor (Windows+R, "regedit")
  2. Navigate to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT > .xsl
  3. Make sure .xsl is selected and not one of the sub-directories
  4. You should see an entry called PerceivedType which has its value set to "text"
  5. Double-click on PerceivedType and change the value to "document"

Re: [ jEdit-users ] Daily build - file association

I upgraded to 5.4.0 today - actually I uninstalled all my other
instances first, and got a clean Application Settings directory, and
migrated in whatever settings I wanted from my old directory, just to
be sure I didn't bring along any weird behavior from before. I'm still
having file association problems.

Jesse - I tried a CSS file too just in case XSL was being weird.

Whenever I follow the usual steps ...
* Right-click the file, Open With, Choose Default Program, Browse,
navigate to  & select jedit.exe ...
I get taken right back to the "Open with" dialog box and jedit has NOT
been added to the list of programs I can open with.

Thankfully, I do at least have the "Open with jEdit" option in the
context menu on files, but I sure do miss that double-click action.

This is on Windows 7.

Re: [ jEdit-users ] Daily build - file association

Jarvis, Bob-2


Haven’t been paying attention to the mailing list recently but saw you were having file association issues under Win 7. I didn’t see that you ever got an answer on this so here’s a walk-through on how to do this:

 

1.       Bring up the Windows Control Panel app.

2.       In the “Search Control Panel” box at the top-right of the window type in “file association”

3.       Under “Folder Options” there should be a link which says “Change the file type associated with a file extension”. Click on this link.

4.       Find the extension you care about in the list and double-click it.

5.       If jEdit shows up in the list of programs click on it. Otherwise:

A.      Click the Browse… button.

B.      In the “Open with…” dialog, navigate to where you have jEdit installed (on my machine it’s C:\Program Files\jEdit)

C.      Select jEdit.exe

D.      Click the “Open” button on the “Open with…” dialog.

E.       Ensure “jEdit – Programmer’s Text Editor” is selected in the dialog.

F.       Click “OK” on the “Open with” dialog.

6.       Verify that “jEdit – Programmer’s Text Editor” is now associated with the extension you care about.

 

Best of luck.

I upgraded to 5.4.0 today - actually I uninstalled all my other
instances first, and got a clean Application Settings directory, and
migrated in whatever settings I wanted from my old directory, just to
be sure I didn't bring along any weird behavior from before. I'm still
having file association problems.

Yes, those are the steps I've been trying. The problem occurs between steps 5C and 5D. After I browse to & select jedit.exe, it's still not showing up in the "Open With" dialog, so I can't proceed. There doesn't seem to be any way to get it to open with jEdit from that end. Thanks for trying!

There should be a button near the bottom of the "Open With" dlg box that
says "Browse", like in the picture here:
    http://i54.tinypic.com/6rtxlu.jpg
Click on it, and it puts you into the Windows file browser.  Navigate to
C:\Program Files\jEdit\ and choose jedit.exe.  Then proceed with the
rest of the steps.

You'll also want to click the "Always use..." checkbox in this dlg box,
otherwise you'll be doing the same thing next time you want to open a
file with that extension.

I can see I'm not explaining my problem very well, so let me try providing screenshots. I do click the "Browse" button, like in this picture:
Then I do navigate to jedit.exe, as you describe, like in this picture:
But after that step, jEdit does NOT appear in the list of options - here is what I get:
So I'm unable to complete Step 5E: Ensure “jEdit – Programmer’s Text Editor” is selected in the dialog.


Does my problem make sense? Am I missing something obvious?

Re: [ jEdit-users ] Daily build - file association

Dale Anson-3
5.4 is out, I downloaded the windows installer on my wife's computer, and jEdit was automatically associated with .txt files, in fact, "Open with jEdit" shows up on the list on any file I right-click on in the file explorer. Setting default as described previously works as expected. Maybe give the 5.4 release version a try? I'm not sure what feature you were needing from 5.4 that you were using the daily builds. If you still need to use the daily builds, maybe download and run the windows installer first, then copy the jedit.jar from the daily build to wherever you installed jEdit (probably C:\Program Files\jEdit)?

Hi Sarah,

I don't know, what's going on. But I guess it's a Windows problem. Since the ordinary manual way doesn't work for You, I would try it at a lower level:

Please create a text file with this content:


Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\*\shell\Open with jEdit]
"Icon"="G:\\Tools\\jEdit_53\\jedit.exe"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\*\shell\Open with jEdit\Command]
@="\"G:\\Tools\\jEdit_53\\jedit.exe\" \"%1\""


and replace the path to jedit.exe with Your correct path. Note that backslashes which are parts of a pathname has to be duplicated inside this fie. If You don't have administration permissions, then also replace "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE" by "HKEY_CURRENT_USER".

Save the edited file and run it by double-clicking and confirm the questions with OK.

If this didn't help I'd have a look into the registry with registry editor...

Robert
