Bug Description

It's an enhancement proposal.

In default ubuntu installation there should be an default action connected to .ics files, I mean when someone tries to click 2x .ics file (or download it from webpage), "/usr/lib/evolution-webcal/evolution-webcal FILENAME" should be run.

If you prefer more elegant solution, you could consider upgrading "preferred applications" preferences dialog.

If Evolution wants a default action for iCal files, Evolution should register it, just like every other application registers its own mime associations upon installation. If Evolution is registered, but is not launching correctly, it's probably a problem with their Desktop Entry file, but it might be a Nautilus bug as well. Please let us know which. Until then, reassigning to Evolution.
