Re: GtkAppChooser custom command patch

Andreas, If it could be an *integrated* Nautilus feature, that would be great. Actually, it's all my users are asking for. Having the ability to run "custom command" in Nautilus. But it should *not* be an additional package -which you might not have installed on some systems - but definitely an integrated one. Should come with vanilla GNOME. I didn't hack Nautilus because I didn't know anything about it, and am more a GTK+ guy.

But selecting 'custom command' doesn't fix it in any way. Fixing it
would involved editing the desktop file, adding the necessary mime
type, and sending a patch to the application author.
I don't doubt that 'custom command' functionality is useful. But I
don't think it should live in the app chooser dialog.
