Maybe the fact that I didn't even know that I had something called
dconf-editor installed…
And I think I added an OR there somewhere, like if they didn't remove it,
they hide it or at least made it a lot harder to find. In earlier versions
most things could be found in the menues. Now they are a lot harder to find
and some things are actually removed, like a few Nautilus features. It was,
for instance, very easy to associate a file type with a home-made script.
Now the easiest way seems to be with Nautilus actions, which isn't even
installed by default.
Never mind, I won't complain more about that in this thread. Thanks for the
dconf-editor hint. I'll try it out and see if it does what I want.
