** Changed in: nautilus (Ubuntu)

Right-clicking a file, choosing "Open With -> Other Application"
provides no way to run an arbitrary command on the file
Status in nautilus package in Ubuntu:
I installed Sublime Text 3 from a third-party source. That installed
and worked fine, and it shows up in the Applications menu as normal.
When I right click any file (I've tried Makefiles and .txt files),
click "Open With", then click "Other Application", there's a list of
possible programs I can open the given file from. Problem is, if the
program I want to use isn't on that list, I can't use it--i.e. I can't
put in an arbitrary command that can be saved and used in the future.
