"Open Containing Folder" for EoG and gedit

 Bug 650402

Bug 650396

Based around Federico's recent fix to add an Open Folder functionality in Evince. Although the nautilus bug to launch nautilus file:///home/kitallis/foo.png and select the corresponding file, recently got fixed. These patches currently use gtk_show_uri() with the parent uri of the file to just launch the default file manager.


  1. Are there bug reports about changing these to "Show in file manager" (which is even more useful)?

  2. @Robin: There has been talk about that: http://mail.gnome.org/archives/desktop-devel-list/2011-May/msg00290.html ; I think that would be more appropriate with the file-select fix in Nautilus.
