Bug Description

Ubuntu 14.04, x64, fully patched. This issue affects Ubuntu 13 too.

After installing gnome-session-fallback to utilize the classic desktop, I am unable to open folders uner the Places menu (recall the classic desktop has two top level menus - Applications and Places). When clicking a folder from the menu (like "Home Folder", "Pictures", etc), disk analyzer opens.

This appears to be a fairly prevelant problem affecting multiple versions of the OS. For example:

  * Ubuntu 14, http://superuser.com/q/848149
  * Ubuntu 13, http://askubuntu.com/q/288270

The fix is to run the following command:

    xdg-mime default nautilus.desktop inode/directory

Perhaps the package gnome-session-fallback should run this command suring installation.
