Description Marius Gedminas (reporter) 2008-01-07 13:45:18 UTC
Please provide the xdg-utils package in the standard OS image:
Comment 1 Eero Tamminen nokia 2008-01-07 14:05:40 UTC
Maemo discussion on this subject:

xdg-utils package on Debian Etch has following:
Description: Desktop integration utilities from freedesktop.org
 xdg-utils contains utilities for integrating applications with the
 desktop environment, regardless of which desktop environment is used.
 The following utilities are included:
  * xdg-desktop-menu - Install desktop menu items
  * xdg-desktop-icon - Install icons on the user's desktop
  * xdg-icon-resource - Install icon resources
  * xdg-mime - Gather MIME information about a file
  * xdg-open - Open a URL in the user's preferred application that
               handles the respective URL or file type
  * xdg-email - Open the user's preferred email client, potentially with
                subject and other info filled in
  * xdg-screensaver - Enable, disable, or suspend the screensaver

Due to dependencies and maemo using D-BUS it should provide it's
own version of this.  Especially xdg-mime and xdg-email would be
interesting, maybe also  xdg-desktop-menu.  xdg-screensaver could
postpone device screen blanking (it's a D-BUS call too).

Sorry, meant xdg-open instead of xdg-mime.

Re-setting the assignee, since Carlos moved on to other tasks.

Please note that this does not affect the legitimacy of the bug in any way.
It's a purely administrative operation. Sorry for the noise.

This will be tackled for Fremantle because it will be helpful for the Search
Hence setting Target Milestone.
Comment 5 Quim Gil nokia 2008-12-29 16:45:05 UTC
Any updates, now that Fremantle is a more concrete thing?
Comment 6 Andre Klapper maemo.org 2009-04-09 13:07:53 UTC
Forwarding comment from internal ticket:
"I'm sorry, we don't have the resources to handle this in Fremantle timeframe."

Keeping this opened and adding it to my "Ask for Harmattan again" list.
Comment 7 Andre Klapper maemo.org 2009-05-11 16:02:35 UTC
Just to clarify again: WONTFIX for Fremantle.
Trying again for Harmattan.
Comment 8 Andre Klapper maemo.org 2009-05-11 18:27:44 UTC
FYI: WONTFIX was also proposed for Harmattan, as the Application Framework will
provide different mechanisms for those operations.
Comment 9 Eero Tamminen nokia 2010-04-21 12:17:52 UTC
Bug 163554 is going to be fixed for Harmattan, setting TM.

(Finally! This has been open over 2 years...)
Comment 10 Andre Klapper maemo.org 2010-04-22 12:16:26 UTC
xdg-utils 1.0.2 (or newer) has been included for Maemo6.
Comment 11 msrebnik 2010-05-03 23:57:34 UTC
Wish this was available now, as I could really use it!

But glad to hear that at least it's coming in next version, Harmattan...
