The current Ubuntu 20.04 behavior for "Open With Other Application" seems to work differently on the Desktop compared to Files/Nautilus.
Example: I configured VS Code IDE to be the default app for
text/plain mime type (
[Default Applications] text/plain=code.desktop
Now, a right click ->
Open with Other Application on a file
foo.bat from the Desktop opens
gedit without prompt,
Open does not have any effect.
If I choose
Show in Files, and do the same sequence, it works as expected -
Open will directly open in VS Code,
Open With asks for the application.
I don't really understand this behavior. How can I make Ubuntu behave the same way, regardless the environment, where the file is executed?
PS: This issue is reproducible with other applications.
