Regularly using QGis on bionic 18.04.4 LTS makes me appreciate the possibility to open a compressed .qgz file by double click.

  1. This seems to not be the default after installing QGis.
  2. Obviously, one can set the default application for this file type to QGis.
  3. Doing so, which associates all Zip archive (application/zip) files to QGis, causes every zipped file to be opened by QGis, which mostly is disappointing and not the desired behavior.
  4. One can always re-define the default app for .zip files as Archive Manager, but this leads back to state 1.

How do I define default applications based on the discernible filetype AND the extension?

OR: what am I missing here?
