Compressed files handling
« on: June 28, 2012, 10:36:46 »
Hello

I may be dumb, but I would like compressed files to be opened by an external viewer (7z in my case) and did not manage to set it.
I tried to deactivate ziphandler plugin, setting a new file type case, to no avail.

Regards

If you do not want MC at all to support any 7Zip (pack/unpack/browse) you can disable the FS-7ZIP plugin (restart mc afterwards)

If you only want to remove so that the .7z (7zip) file extension is not handled as a virtual filesystem by MC  then you need remove so that FS-Zip does not register it self as handler for .7z

In the Configuration > Manage Plugin and Extensions -> FileSystem Plugins.

Select FS-7Zip then click on Option
then double click on 7z in the list and click on remove. And close and save changes and restart MC.

Now .7z file will not be handled as virtual filesystem and if you click on them they will be launch, and if 7Zip is installed it should open it that.

In Build 1110, only FS-RAR could be deactivated globally.
all other archive plugins reactivate themselves on startup.

Could you confirm ?

FS-7ZIP is a plugin to..  You can remove this too.

But Zip/Tar/gz/Bz2 is built in.

But you can do what I sad as a second option
In the Configuration > Manage Plugin and Extensions -> FileSystem Plugins.

Select FS-7Zip then click on Option
then double click on 7z in the list and click on remove. And close and save changes and restart MC.

Now .7z file will not be handled as virtual filesystem and if you click on them they will be launch, and if 7Zip is installed it should open it that.

.. Change that for all plugin that you do not want MC to support as virtual filesystems

You cheated me  ;D
Ok, i will inhibate rather than deactivate. But then, it means checkboxes are not useful for them.

Disable by checkbox might not work for built in extensions..

Disable is more like 'do not load'. But as they are built in. They are always there. There is no way to not load something that is built it.

If I get the time I might redesign the loading process to take care of it.

Bad news:
In 2.5.0 (1110), you cannot unregister file extensions from built-in plugins neither.
Seems there is too much protection there.
