how to make emacs (rather than mousepad) the default editor in xfce

there are at least two ways to change the default editor under XFCE.
1. the X11 way:
open thunar (the file manager) -> right click on a text-file ->
properties -> Open with -> choose your prefered app (e.g. emacs)
2. the *NIX way:
edit the following file: /etc/xdg/xubuntu/applications/defaults.list
also, consider having a look at /usr/share/mime/ - if you don't want
to change settings system-wide you may put your config at
~/.local/share/mime/ resp. /.local/share/applications/defaults.list
i only have experience with debian and ubuntu, but i guess that the
path should be the same everywhere (although i wouldn't bet on it).
