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


Description Ivo Krastev 2006-05-16 08:31:30 CEST

When selecting a file and
Right-click on it,
then choose "Open with Other Application ..."
dialog "Open with" appers

There an option to remove the Recommended Applications is needed "desperately"

for Example:

I choose to open a .text1 file with Mousepad
but instead of

mousepad %f

I type

qpad %f

where qpad is something a different program (not an editor)

I cannot remove the qpad entry from the list afterwards, 
although I can add new entry with correct command 
This is something annoying rather than a BUG!
Some geeks might even call it a feature (colleagues of mine)
But I think it is important to have a "remove/delete" button there (only for recommended application list, because there is other applications list, 
which I think should not be accessible for modification by users!

Reproducible: Always

Proposed patch worked for me! (applied on version: Thunar-0.3.1svn-r21486)

It seems to be a perfect functionality!
I can see that the [- Remove Launcher] ONLY deletes the custom actions asssigned by the USER, not by the mime shared data, which is GREAT!

I think that is all. I hope what I described as success is really the purpose of the patch!

Thank you for the quick responce and keep up the good work!
