    Arronax. Nautilus plugin to modify .desktop files.

    Gonna try this when I get home. I posted this here as it's a testing ppa.

    Gave it a try - works well
    Glad to see one of these helpers realize that having a Mimetypes= line can be useful in unity*

    Nice one. This sort of thing should really be part of the system rather than 3rd party though. What do you think?

    Well the history of Ubuntu in the unity 'era' has shown very little interest in default suppling any tools for users other than what's currently there (they did add some stuff to appearances, ect.

    So I'd gather that this could fall under that philosophy even though it has nothing to do with unity itself.
    What's nice about it is that it's a python-nautilus extension vs. a nautilus extension, I've never had any issue using such extensions (that's what the nautilus-actions-extra ppa's use
