Maybe this page could be moved to Xdg-utils? {{ic|xdg-open}} is in {{Pkg|xdg-utils}}, and this page also describes {{ic|xdg-mime}}, {{ic|run-mailcap}} and {{ic|mimetype}}... -- [[User:Lahwaacz|Lahwaacz]] ([[User talk:Lahwaacz|talk]]) 09:40, 6 June 2013 (UTC)

I think xdg-open info should be kept here. Move xdg-utils related info from [[Default Applications]] here instead merge this page to [[Default Applications]]. [[Default Applications]] is more general.

:While desktop environments may have file handlers of their own (''gvfs-open'', ''exo-open'', etc.), and ''xdg-open'' is an intermediate for those, it boils down to the same principle: [[Desktop entries]] and MIME types.

Installation

"If you run xdg-open without a desktop environment, you should also install perl-file-mimeinfo". I tried bash -x xdg-open ... without a desktop environment (just xmonad) and noticed it uses xdg-mime regardless of whether perl-file-mimeinfo is installed. Is perl-file-mimeinfo still necessary? -- Limyreth (talk) 15:49, 8 October 2015 (UTC)

I don't think it has ever been necessary, it is just an optional dependency of xdg-utils. -- Lahwaacz (talk) 16:42, 8 October 2015 (UTC)
Wording changed in Default_applications#xdg-open. Closing. --Indigo (talk) 04:21, 31 May 2016 (UTC)
