Description (last modified by asdjj)

Most of Desktop Environments, like GNOME, use 'MimeType=' line from *.desktop files inside the '/usr/share/applications' and '~/.local/share/applications' directories.

This line make mime-type assosiation between program and file types, which this program support.

For FileZilla, this assosiation may be like this:

MimeType=x-scheme-handler/ftp;

If this line placed into filezilla.desktop file:

[Desktop Entry]
Name=FileZilla
...
MimeType=x-scheme-handler/ftp;

then Desktop Environment will be know, that 'ftp://' links, which mime-type is 'x-scheme-handler/ftp', may be opened by FileZilla program.
Desktop Environment will know this from /usr/share/application/filezilla.desktop file.

Then, all clicks to 'ftp://' links from browser (Chrome, Firefox, Opera, etc.) may be quickly opened in the FileZilla program.

Please, add this line to 'data/filezilla.desktop' file:

MimeType=x-scheme-handler/ftp;
