Re: [Ranger-users] Desktop file for ranger

Interestingly, now my chrome opens baobab instead ranger.
I installed ranger.desktop both locally and via command

xdg-mime default ranger.desktop inode/directory

xdg-open $HOME opens ranger

Next thing I did is to use mimeopen command
Setting ranger as default (using option -d) made chrome open it in its own window.

I see it created defaults.list in .local/share/applications. I changed it for inode/directory to point to ranger.desktop and then it worked, but, terminal was not my default one, gnome-terminal, but it opened xterm.

What determines which terminal opens when desktop file Terminal=true is set ?
I found the same question here:

Proposed solution via update-alternatives didn't work...

Here is a desktop file for a better integration of ranger with other

up ranger from Firefox by selecting "Open containing directory" in
Downloads popup).

I would have made a pull request, but I do not know where to put this
file. So here it is.

Packagers have to run 'desktop-file-install ranger.desktop' to install
it system-wide. To install it for the current user only, it could be
copied in ~/.local/share/applications.
