Bug Description

Binary package hint: brasero

Open up a Nautilus window, right-click on any file, and select "Open with Other Application...". A dialogue window will appear, where the item for Brasero will be shown five times among other applications, in no particular order.

It should be only one item, I suppose.

Thanks for the report, not here, can you reproduce that with a new user created on your system? thanks.

It's still the same in quest / new created user session. It seems like all of these .desktop files are displayed in that "Open with..." list, even if the last four has "NoDisplay=true" set inside:


It shows every application which has "%u" (or other variable) parameter after "Exec=application_name".

I cannot confirm this, i only got one brasero window, this should be confirmed by someone else getting the issue, thanks.

confirming, the nodisplay option is not used in this dialog because the option is for menus and applications which are listed in the menus should be listed there

Solved on Bug #290846:
I've the solution:
1- Open the menu editor: System>Preferences>Main Menu
2- Select graphics and delete all the unused brasero items

I did as Rafa Domenech suggested for the multiple copies of Okular which all appeared to have the same command line options. However:

1) The "brasero" items all have different command line options (-i, -p, -l, etc.) Are these somehow used by the OS?
2) If (1) is true, then could we give them different names other than just "Brasero", i.e. "Brasero Project" and "Brasero Disk Image".
3) Is it possible to alphabetize this list? What order is it in now?

It still a bug because my solution is a dirty solution. Lunomad is right.

I just installed Intrepid from scratch and I can confirm that it is listed multiple times in the Open with dialog.

It happens on Jaunty and not just in Intrepid. Therefore the title should be changed.

I think this list should be filtered out so that only unique entries may exist in the dialog.

Rather than creating a new bug in hundred paper cut project. I've requested that this bug be handled as a paper cut.
The bug for sorting this "open with" dialog has been done, it would make sense to make this list contain unique entries. (Don't want the dialog to show 10 of the same items one after each other, because of sorting)

Seems to be fixed in Oneiric.
Applications are both alphabetized and limited to one or two duplicates.

Should this bug now be closed?
