[SOLVED] Set Thunar for Chromium "Show in folder" downloads

Hi I'm on bspwm trying to find the default setting that causes Chromium to open Catfish instead of Thunar for downloads "Show in folder". I've tried editing the mimeapps.list with "inode/directory=thunar.desktop;" but that doesn't seem to do it. Any ideas? Thank you.

Copy/paste the mimeapps list to a different name and delete the original.

Reboot and check again.

Aha! Works I did what you explained above and then went into the MIME Type Editor, searched for inode and changed the Catfish options to Thunar. Thanks! :D :D
