[Ubuntu 14.10] - How can I get IntelliJ IDEA's “Show in Files” to open Nemo instead of Nautilus?

In IntelliJ IDEA you can right click a file or folder and select

Show in Files
as highlighted here

enter image description here

When I do this, it opens the folder in Nautilus. I would like to open this in Nemo.

I have already run this command to set Nemo as the default 'handler':
    xdg-mime default nemo.desktop inode/directory application/x-gnome-saved-search

however IntelliJ does not seem to recognize it. What can I do to make IntelliJ open these paths in Nemo and not Nautilus?

Strange. Works for me in IDEA 14.1.1 and Ubuntu 14.04.
I also set Nemo to be default as described in http://www.fandigital.com/2013/01/set-nemo-default-file-manager-ubuntu.html

Did you restart (IDEA, desktop session, ...)?
Which versions of IDEA and Java?

That's what I had followed too but Nautilus kept opening.  I kept repeating those instructions several times.  So after your post I decided to unregister Nemo, uninstall it, reinstall it, reregister it.  And now it's working.  Really unsure as to what the problem was but hey, it works now.  Thanks for your time!
