Jupyter automatically opens unlinked Obsidian vault?

1. Issue at hand

Calling jupyter via the command line opens my Obsidian vault instead of jupyter.

This occurs in a folder outside of my established vault folder. The jupyter server is active and I can get to it by opening the localhost address manually.

I can’t find anyone else with this issue searching around, and I’d appreciate any pointers.

OS: Ubuntu 18.04.6

Obsidian Version: 0.12.19

Jupyter Versions:

  1. jupyter core: 4.7.1
  2. jupyter-notebook: 6.3.0
  3. jupyter lab: 3.0.12

2. Things I have tried

  1. Searched forums and google for related issues
  2. Browsed preferences in Obsidian for anything potentially relevant about automatic opening or linking
  3. Examined the console output from calling jupyter lab and jupyter notebook. A section of the call is (I think) from obsidian, which is unexpected since I’ve called jupyter. I’ve included the line below:
... Loading main app package /tmp/.mount_Obsidi56qFq3/resources/obsidian.asar

3. What I’m trying to do

  1. Stop Obsidian from automatically opening when I start jupyter
  2. Determine if this is caused by Obsidian or Jupyter (or both)

After some more explorations, I realized that in installing Obsidian I had somehow made it my default browser (?). This probably happened when I was creating a .desktop launcher for the AppImage, but not sure what I did exactly.

Anyways, happy to have the issue resolved.
