I should first point out that I'm not using Ubuntu Tweak. But here are 
my two cents on file associations. These tweaks seem to work perfectly 
in Xubuntu.

Some file associations are stored system-wide in 
/usr/share/applications/defaults.list. User-specific file associations 
are stored in ~/.local/share/applications/mimeapps.list.

I recommend editing user-specific associations. If the file doesn't 
exist, you may copy the one from /usr to your home-directory.

You should also check that your scripts are executable.
