Nevertheless, I can double click a .tex file in Nautilus to make it open in gvim.Does anyone know how to edit my MIME types to make something like this work in Galeon?
Answering my own question: I asked on #galeon on irc.gimp.net, and Galeon ignores file extensions and only pays attention to MIME types. My GNOME settings were configured to accept text/x-tex as a TeX file, and the web server at the other end was sending me application/x-tex.
T he lesson here is to look on the internet and figure out what the correct MIME type is when you set up a file association (http://www.utoronto.ca/ian/books/html4ed/appb/mimetype.html and ftp://ftp.isi.edu/in-notes/iana/assignments/media-types/media-types appear to be good sites for this) and to be ready to configure all of the other possibilities if different web servers send out different MIME types.
