I recently installed 2019a in Ubuntu 18.04. However, .mlx files are associated with "Archive Manager". How can I change this association?

I believe you can try the steps mentioned in this link: This should help you modify and link the application required to open the "MLX Scripts".

Hi Soumya,
Thanks for the link. The discussion there-in (i.e., adding %F at the end of 'Exec=" line) almost solved the problem. All .mlx files are now associated with MATLAB. However, double clicking any .mlx file opens MATLAB but does not load that file. So there is some disconnect somewhere.
