** Changed in: onboard (Ubuntu)
       Status: Confirmed => Fix Released

You received this bug notification because you are a member of Desktop

  [PATCH] Let DE decide which file manager to use instead of custom

Status in Onboard on-screen keyboard:
  Fix Committed
Status in onboard package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  Currently, the file manager used to open the user layout directory is
  determined as follows: If Nautilus is installed, use Nautilus.
  Otherwise, if Thunar is installed, use Thunar.

  This has two problems:
  1) The user might have Nautilus/Thunar installed, even though this is not the default. Onboard would still launch the non-default.
  2) The user might not have Nautilus/Thunar installed, in which case Onboard fails silently.

  This patch uses xdg-open instead to let the Desktop Environment decide
  which file manager to use.
