Wildcards in mailcap
Seems the ~/.mailcap example is wrong. According to mailcap(4), wildcards are only supported for the subtype, not for (main) type.
*/*; xdg-open "%s"
might be wrong, while e.g.
application/*; xdg-open "%s"
is correct (but of course does not cover all types). At leastAUR interprets mailcap that way. Checked it in the source of AUR, took me 2 hours to figure this out.
Which programs are compatible with the Shared MIME database specification? I assume that all of them are, but it isn't clear.
- Do you mean what programs register their MIME types according to the Shared MIME database specification? I'd say most but not all. You can check using
pacman -Ql pkg | grep mime.--Larivact (talk) 06:52, 4 May 2018 (UTC)
