Whenever I plug in a USB device (e.g. my phone, or a sdcard) ubuntu pops up a window asking what application to open it with. You can choose to "always open in this application"

Where is that configuration stored and how can I change it?

It's part of nautilus. System | Preferences | File Management | Media

I think I miss a package. However, I found it under "Edit » Configuration » Media" (My Ubuntu is Dutch, so the translation may not be 100% accurate). Thanks a lot! – berkes Jul 19 '10 at 8:37
If you were accessing it from a nautilus window instead of the main menu then that's where you'd find it. – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Jul 19 '10 at 8:40
