uncheck it by default?
Have a look at the source:
The checkbox is currently hardcoded to be active.
Thanks for the info.
Could we change this behavior in openSUSE?
As far as I remember, there is a similar option in MS Windows (know
nothing about KDE or GNOME), and it is inactive by default. It looks
more logically for me.
In GNOME a previously unknown filetype always gets associated
with the application you first open it with (there is no checkbox
to disable this), in KDE OTOH it will never be associated with
the application you open it with (no checkbox to enable this
either). I'd rather avoid carrying such a patch which will never
be merged upstream and given that this boils down to personal
preference either way someone is likely be annoyed by either
behavior. The right thing to resolve this would probably be a
setting in Thunar allowing people to have their preferred
behavior be remembered (which you originally asked for).
Would you mind filing an enhancement request at
against Thunar (and subscribe me as
well)? No guarantee this will be implemented given how
development has slowed down but it shouldn't be too difficult to
come up with a patch and it won't get lost this way.
