Sorry to hear that. That command has always worked for me, but I use KDE, so there may be some other places in a Gnome system where that link gets stored. There used to be a place in the KDE Control Center for setting preferred apps which had to do with how a KDE app would respond. Maybe someone else will be able to help you on the Gnome side of things. What happens if you right-click on those desktop links of yours?
