Bug Description

(initiall reported at https://discourse.ubuntu.com/t/call-for-testing-chromium-browser-deb-to-snap-transition/11179/100)

« When going to Details | Default Applications | Web in the Settings Application I expect to see a single entry for each web browser that I have installed but “Chromium Web Browser” appears twice.

Selecting either entry appears to correctly set Chromium as the default browser […].

Does anyone else see two entries for Chromium? »

Removing the MimeType entry from chromium-browser.desktop should be sufficient to remove the corresponding entry in the list of applications able to handle web links.

This won't happen until after the default has been changed from chromium-browser.desktop to chromium_chromium.desktop though, which will happen the first time the /usr/bin/chromium-browser wrapper script is executed.

Hopefully this is acceptable.

  * debian/chromium-browser.desktop: remove the MimeType entry to avoid the
    wrapper being listed as an application able to handle web links in
    gnome-control-center (LP: #1838628)
