Krusader commander and handling WAR archives

I really don't know if i'm the only one java guy using Krusader commander on Gnome, but i've been not able to find any solution on Internet for appropriate handling of WAR archives in this tool. After a one hour of elaboration i found solution based on change of mime type mapping.

  • Delete the /usr/share/mimelnk/application/x-webarchive.desktop
  • Open the /usr/share/mimelnk/application/x-jar.desktop and change the Patterns value to *.jar;*.war
  • restart a Krusader instance

I cannot say if it's a kind of hack but works for me, so your comments are welcome.
