Bug Description

I wanted to use system->settings->default applications to set my default file browser (from nautilus to mc) but I don't find the appropriate tab in that dialog box. I'd appreciate if that setting would be available. Thank you.

reply from the upstream developers :
"Nautilus is an integral part of the GNOME desktop. This might change with 3.0.
However, changing the default in preferred apps doesn't really provide any
benefits, and you can always set up custom shortcuts in the keybinding settings
if you want to."
