Running web client for vmware esxi 6.7 on ubuntu 18.04. When I select Launch Remote Console it starts xdg-open for vmware player. How do I change this to vmware workstation pro 15.02?
Go to the settings of the browser that you use and change the associated application to the vmrc extensions.
I pasted a screenshot below of Firefox on Windows; so how it is exactly is dependent on the browser that you use.
Thank you for your help with my xdg-open problem. Your method used in Firefox browser does indeed offer a choice between Workstation and Player for launching a remote console for esxi vm. I am able to make the workstation choice sticky as well.
However, I failed to mention that I am using Google Chrome browser. I tried adding an entry for ~/.local/share/applications/mimeapps.list and a restart but the default for xdg-open remains vmware player.
Finally, I was able to change the default xdg-open for mimetype vmrc
xdg-mime default vmware-workstation.desktop x-scheme-handler/vmrc
xdg-mime query default x-scheme-handler/vmrc
