Thank you for your bug report, what are .tpl? How do you create those? Where would you expect to see those listed?

.tpl are file extension used in Smarty Templating Engine. I used gEdit as my editor/IDE in programming. Since File Browser Pane is not activate automatically from gEdit, I needed to enable it by going to Edit->Preferences->Plugin and then check File Browser Pane. From the file browser, I can browse all my web files (.php,.html,.css,.js) except .tpl files.

Please help thanks..

In gnome bugzilla Paolo Borelli sais:

this is probably due to the fact that gio does not report them as "text" files,
if you right click on the file browser and select filter->show binary they
should be listed.

To fix it properly the mime type database of freedesktop's shared-mime-info
should report them as descendants of text/plain mime type.

I found a temporary fix for that:

Right-click in your Gedit file browser > Filter > Display binary files

Make sure the "Display binary files" is checked.
