Description Christoph Wickert 2012-10-27 19:48:05 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Xfce Bug #7392 +++

I noticed that Thunar 1.2.x no longer honors MIME types in the desktop files in /usr/share/Thunar/sendto. According to http://thunar.xfce.org/documentation/C/customizing-thunar.html#sendto it should be able to limit actions to certain MIME types: "The MimeType of the target .desktop specifies the types of files for which this action should be available in the Send To menu."

However the menu entries are shown regardless of the file type. This used to work in Thunar <= 1.x
