Set midnight commander as default file manager.

How can i set mc as a default file manager to open files from chrome downloads in it?
I've put a .desktop file inside /ust/share/applications/

midnight-commander.desktop

[Desktop Entry]
Name=Midnight Commander
Type=Application
Terminal=true
Comment=A visual file manager
Exec=mc
TryExec=mc
Icon=MidnightCommander
Categories=System;FileTools;FileManager;

and run xdg-mime default midnight-commander.desktop inode/directory. But when i try to open something from chrome downloads nothing happens.

Re: Set midnight commander as default file manager.

You set "Terminal=true", but what terminal is it trying to run? Do you have xterm installed?

There's also "xterm -e mc" in case the rest fails.

Great things come in tar.xz packages.
