Re: GtkAppChooser custom command patch

Hi Matthias, It was that kind of answer that I was asking for. So what you're telling me is that I shouldn't try to develop the patch any further, because it will never be integrated upstream, right ? If that's the case, I will come back to my user group with this answer. I think you (not personally, but taken more widely) are wrong, and that it does some harm here, but fair enough, it is definitely your project. I won't debate this again, points have already been widely made before (Bernhard does have some here). Personally, what I regret the most is having spent time writing a useless patch. It does imply something for my past and future-planned contributions, too.

I don't think we want that in the app chooser, I'm afraid.
Applications need to be installed properly, which will make them show
up in the list of application.  Turning the app chooser into a
fix-up-your-os tool is not the right answer.

Thank you Bernard !
I've written the change due to recurring requests from my local user group
(and other people, too).
Any feedback is welcome.

I did not look at your implementation, but the screenshots look very
promising - in fact I think that is a highly desirable feature and your
implementation is (imho) how it should be done!

Hi folks,
Could someone please review the following patch/suggestion :**show_bug.cgi?id=650284#c36<>
It adds a "Use custom command" on the lower part of the GtkAppChooser
window, so users can specify an unlisted application (case of uncomplete
mimetypes or .desktop associations).
Screenshots are available in the comment.
The patch itself is unfinished, I'm mostly asking for feedback about the
general idea and design.
