extfs handlers stored in either ~/.config/mc/extfs.d nor ~/.mc/extfs.d are not picked up. To reproduce it:

  1. Move one of the extfs handlers from /usr/lib/mc/extfs.d to either ~/.config/mc/extfs.d or ~/.mc/extfs.d
  2. Restart mc
  3. Try to open a file handled by the extfs handler: it won't open

Why do you want ~/.config/mc/extfs.d? Look at the output of mc -F:

/usr/lib/mc/extfs.d/README says:

To handle requests, create a shell/perl/python/etc script/program
(with executable permissions) in $(libexecdir)/mc/extfs.d
or in ~/.mc/extfs.d.

so I supposed ~/.config/mc/extfs.d was the correct place to put them. Thanks for mc -F, I didn't know about it.

Replying to marcelpaulo:

/usr/lib/mc/extfs.d/README says:

or in ~/.mc/extfs.d.

Fixed in the 3780_cleanup branch. Thanks!

so I supposed ~/.config/mc/extfs.d was the correct place to put them.

extfs script isn't config though.
