Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 748277
No default file manager set even if just one is installed
Last modified: 2011-10-29 02:31:37 EDT
Description of problem:
After installation of the Xfce spin, there is no default file manager configured in exo-preferred-applications - even though Thunar is the only one that is installed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install Xfce
2. log in
3. click on a folder, e.g. from the directory menu or the desktop
A dialog to select the preferred file manager shows up and there is only one file manager to choose (Thunar)
Thunar should show up directly.
"FileManager=Thunar" is missing from /etc/xdg/xfce4/helpers.rc
I already added a workaround for this on the livecd in F15, but the proper fix is to do it in the package because it affects installed systems, too.
