Open with Other Application dialog - cannot remove item from recommended appl...


Description alexxcons editbugs 2018-05-11 22:16:07 CEST
Currently, there is no working way to remove launchers from $HOME/.local/share/applications' via thunar.

When pressing "open with"--> "other application" one can right-click on the different applications and gets a grayed out, disabled "remove launcher" button.

Trying the same in nautilus works fine. On nautilus the feature is called "forget association".

It looks like Bug #1814 once fixed  this issue .. to be checked why the item is grayed out now.

The "Remove Launcher" entry is meant for user added launchers (-> use a custom command).

[Added Associations]

Ok, thanks for the hint !
So what I am requesting actually is a new feature :)

What I want it is not about removing launchers, but about not showing some generally installed launchers as "recommended application"/"preferred application".
