Change Text Editor Ubuntu 14.04 LTS Without /usr/share/applications/defaults.list

It was suck. I’ve spent hours to find this solution. If you want to change your Ubuntu 14.04 LTS text editor by changing /usr/share/applications/defaults.list and then you may find it doesn’t work, you can try edit the ~/.local/share/applications/mimeapps.list.

I don’t know why all of these references below just don’t work in my case. But you can give it a try.

That’s what I see in my mimeapps.list now. Yes I’ve moved on from Gedit to Sublime.
