You need to
before you can comment on or make changes to this bug.
Please provide the xdg-utils package in the standard OS image:
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).
> Especially xdg-mime and xdg-email would be interesting
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.
Any updates, now that Fremantle is a more concrete thing?
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.
Just to clarify again: WONTFIX for Fremantle.
Trying again for Harmattan.
FYI: WONTFIX was also proposed for Harmattan, as the Application Framework will
provide different mechanisms for those operations.
Bug 163554 is going to be fixed for Harmattan, setting TM.
(Finally! This has been open over 2 years...)
xdg-utils 1.0.2 (or newer) has been included for Maemo6.
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...
