Default file manager for Bodhi Linux / Moksha Desktop is not configured properly
Open, Incoming QueuePublic

Description

Description:
After vanilla install, applications relying on accurate defaults for which file manager to use will fail (silently).
For example:

  • Using transmission; right clicking and selecting "Open Folder" will do nothing
  • Chromium - clicking "Show in folder" for downloaded items won't open anything

Problem:
pcmanfm is the default file manger but nautilus is still configured as default under xdg-mime settings

xdg-mime query default inode/directory
nautilus.desktop

Solution:
Update pcmanfm as the default option to be used as nautilus is not installed by default; this can be updated as below:

xdg-mime default pcmanfm.desktop inode/directory
