Hi guys,

when I use firefox to download some files I had to always use open directory with file to open that file. Because when i tried to direct open an error dialog appeared. Cannot display %s Not a directory.

I fixed it with exo-preferred-applications and custom bash script:


if test -d $1; then
caja "$1";
thunar "$1";

As you can see, other managers like thunar, etc. if receive file as argument, open it in preferred application. fix it. Thanks.

P.S.: You are great. I really enjoyed gnome 2 desktop but now i am enjoying the same but improved.
