Hi Humphrey, to help me prepare a summary for the programmers, could you post the exact steps to reproduce?
For example,
1. Open nautilus
2. right click on (what type of file?)...

And could you attach a screen print of the "other applications" menu, showing that ghex is missing?

summary: - nautilus does not show Ghex in Select Application
+ nautilus does not show Ghex in "Open With">"Other Application" list

Possibly related to bug #1794899.

Note that the problem has disappeared.

My feel is that there is some underlying problem.

On what sort of file did you try to open it? Does it work now?
