This "bug" affects multiple users; for references see below.
easytag.desktop file advertises
MimeType=inode/directory which makes sense because EasyTag can open directories. Unfortunately, the effect is that in some cases, EasyTag becomes the default file manager. I've experienced this behaviour on multiple user accounts on multiple computers. I nearly uninstalled EasyTag because of this, but ultimately decided to just edit the
easytag.desktop file. I now do a regular check using
grep '^MimeType=inode/directory' /usr/share/applications/*
Note: technically EasyTag is not at fault, but it affects users. For example, when using
sudo su -->
gnome-disks, the root profile (
/root/.config) is being used, which on my system is never used, so only default settings are used. Opening a mountpoint from gnome-disks results in EasyTag showing up. Not what I want.
So I suggest to remove the
inode/directory from MimeType. Maybe one could copy the desktop file to the user config directory and add it again; a checkbox in the EasyTag program could then enable directory integretion from the file manager. And yes I know, the fault is not with EasyTag, but the problem is.
