Veracrypt - open in Thunar

Just giving Sway a try.

When using veracrypt ... automatic file explorer is opening in catfish, rather than thunar. Would I need to create a script to change the behavior?

I don't know if this will help, since I'm not a sway user... I found this interesting post, explaining how it works.
If you go to the linked source (Line number changed) you can see the options as well.
Maybe you could see if you could do anything with xdg-open:
Or maybe there's simply a way to set thunar as default app...


The simple way is to run this command:

xdg-mime default thunar.desktop inode/directory

The manual way to do this is to edit the config at ~/.config/mimeappslist and add the line inode/directory=thunar.desktop to the "Default Applications" list.
