I' opening an ML file from the terminal using an open command is OS X. Currently, the bindings are such that it opened the file through Sublime Text 2.

I get the following error whenever I first open the file somefile.ml:

LSOpenURLsWithRole() failed with error -128 for the file /Users/.../somefile.ml

I deleted the LaunchServices.plist file as I remember adding support for opening files with no extensions — but still the problem persists.

I don't understand what the error conforms to or why is it showing up after all of these changes. Any ideas?

Have you tried rebuilding the Launch Services database? –  ؘؘؘؘ Feb 15 '13 at 9:15
I did rebuild the database. I've tried restarting and it still occurs. –  p0lAris Feb 15 '13 at 22:02
