Is there a way to compile ROX-Filer and tell it to not use gnome-vfs even
if it finds it? A --disable-vfs in the configure script would be nice.
Maybe I should explain why I want to disable it: I think the old behaviour
where all files with the executable bit set were coloured green and got
executed when clicked on worked just as I wanted. I think its more logical
to handle all files with the exec bit set in a uniform way. When I think
of it, maybe it would be good if all files with exec bit set were coloured
green, but they got their icon set according to their mime-type? That way
you could see both the type and exec bit in a fast way.
One other problem I found which I also think is related to gnome-vfs is
that you can no longer use drag & drop to make scripts execute with the
objects dropped on them as their arguments. The only workaround I've found
was to use extended attributes to set type to application/x-executable,
but that's not an option for most people.
