Solution for Type=Link .desktop files?
For the longest time, I've used
.desktop files with
sftp:///... URLs to create "shortcuts" between different locations on my local network. For example, Devhost might contain a file
/home/ferd/Documents/Documents on Testserver.desktop with the contents:
[Desktop Entry] Version=1.0 Encoding=UTF-8 Name=Downloads on Testserver Type=Link URL=sftp://ferd@testserver/home/ferd/Documents/ Icon=folder-remote
After upgrading to 3.28 those links appear to no longer be working correctly, though they do sort of work — if I right-click on the "Downloads on Testserver" link and choose Properties, I'm shown the file counts, size, and free space available for the remote filesystem. But double-clicking the icon (or choosing "Open" from the context menu) produces an error message:
And I'm getting the impression that, even if this did work, with the removal of
.desktop launching support
Type=Link files will no longer be supported either. (Please correct me if I'm wrong.) So, is there any other solution to creating links between network filesystem paths?
