gnome 3.14 RC2 hitting sid
« on: 2014/09/20, 13:22:31 »
Hello dear gnome users,

in about six weeks jessie will be frozen, so developers are in a hurry to get latest gnome into it.

During the last night gnome 3.14 RC2 was uploaded to debian unstable (still continued, i guess). 
and today on i386 gir1.2-mutter-3.0 breaks gnome-shell versions older than 3.13.92

Be careful with dist-upgrades!

greetings
musca

Just upgraded, liking it so far but it will break extensions.

So, after upgrading two systems to gnome 3.14 I had the same problem on two machines where, for some reason disk usage analyzer had become my file manager.  To fix I had to edit the following file; (please take backups)

Code: [Select]
/usr/share/applications/org.gnome.baobab.desktop
edit the following line;

Code: [Select]
MimeType=inode/directory;
to

Code: [Select]
MimeType=inode/directory:1;
Then execute
Code: [Select]
update-desktop-database -q
So now the places extension and plugging in a usb drive will ask to open it with files instead of disk usage analyzer.
