./misc/xdg-utils, Tools to assist applications with various desktop integration tasks

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.1.3nb1, Package name: xdg-utils-1.1.3nb1, Maintainer: leot

The xdg-utils package is a set of simple scripts that provide basic
desktop integration functions for any Free Desktop, such as Linux.

They are intended to provide a set of defacto standards. This means

* Third party software developers can rely on these xdg-utils for
all of their simple integration needs.

* Developers of desktop environments can make sure that their
environments are well supported

If a desktop developer wants to be certain that their environment
functions with all third party software, then can simply make sure
that these utilities work properly in their environment. This will
hopefully mean that 'third tier' window managers such as XFCE and
Blackbox can reach full parity with Gnome and KDE in terms of third
party ISV support.

* Distribution vendors can provide custom versions of these utilities

If a distribution vendor wishes to have unusual systems, they can
provide custom scripts, and the third party software should still
continue to work.

Required to run:
[textproc/gsed] [shells/bash]

Log message:
Update xdg-utils to 1.1.1:

=== xdg-utils 1.1.1 ===

2015-10-05 Per Olofsson <pelle@debian.org>
   * xdg-screensaver: Run 'xset -dpms' and then 'xset +dpms' to reset
     the DPMS timer. Thanks to Stephen Thomas for the idea.
     (Debian bug #745340)
   * xdg-open: Fix regression in generic mode (wrong variable name) which
     prevented files from being opened using the desktop file/mimeapps.list
   * xdg-open: Add proper quoting so that files with spaces in their names
     can be opened in generic mode and LXDE. (Debian bug #801048)

=== xdg-utils 1.1.0 ===

2015-10-04 Per Olofsson <pelle@debian.org>
   * Add references to specifications to the manuals. (Debian bug #800826)
   * xdg-email: Remove obsolete references to
     http://portland.freedesktop.org/wiki/EmailConfig from the manual.

2015-10-03 Per Olofsson <pelle@debian.org>
   * xdg-email: Rewrite open_kde()
   * xdg-open: Only strip queries (?) and fragments (#) from file URLs before
     decoding them, not from (decoded) paths. Otherwise we can't open files
     with hash or question marks in their names. (Debian bug #800355)

2015-09-27 Per Olofsson <pelle@debian.org>
   * xdg-settings: Detect generic DE instead of failing. (Debian bug #787791)
   * xdg-settings: Add a proper generic mode.

2015-09-26 Per Olofsson <pelle@debian.org>
   * xdg-mime: Check ~/.config/mimeapps.list instead of
     ~/.config/applications/mimeapps.list when looking for default
   * xdg-open: Fall back to generic mode if gvfs-open and gnome-open
     are missing. Don't try to use gnome-open if running under GNOME 3 or
     Cinnamon. (Debian bug #685304)
   * xdg-open, xdg-email: Add iceweasel to the list of fallback browsers.
     (Debian bug #788047)

2015-09-25 Per Olofsson <pelle@debian.org>
   * xdg-utils-common: Add support for $XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP value X-Generic.
     When set, xdg-utils will pretend that it is running under a generic DE
     which can be useful for debugging purposes.

2015-09-23 Per Olofsson <pelle@debian.org>
   * xdg-open: Percent-decode file:// URLs in open_lxde and add testcase.

2015-09-22 Per Olofsson <pelle@debian.org>
   * Add a fully automated (non-interactive) test suite (under development).
     Run it using "make autotest".
   * xdg-screensaver: Use the DBus API from a Perl script to inhibit
     gnome-screensaver. This is necessary since the SimulateUserActivity call
     is not implemented. Calling Inhibit using dbus-send does not work either
     since gnome-screensaver watches the pid of the calling process and
     dbus-send exits immediately. Distributions are advised to make xdg-utils
     depend on the Perl modules Net::DBus and X11::Protocol. Thanks to
     Ben Hutchings for writing the Perl script.
   * xdg-email: Add support for the $MAILER environment variable.
   * xdg-open: Add support for running without X.
   * xdg-open: Try www-browser first of the non-X browsers. (www-browser is
     a symlink to the preferred non-X browser in Debian.)
   * xdg-icon-resource: Don't try to install anything into empty $icon_dir's.

2015-09-20 Per Olofsson <pelle@debian.org>
   * xdg-open: Try $BROWSER first in generic mode if it is set by the user.

2015-09-18 Rex Dieter <rdieter@fedoraproject.org>
   * xdg-email: Recipients passed to Thunderbird are incorrectly quoted (BR91996)

   * xdg-screensaver support for xautolock (BR89655)

   * xdg-email: bashism: relies on bash's echo in run_thunderbird() (BR91990)
   * xdg-email: Icedove support (BR91997)
   * xdg-email: generic mode does nothing (BR92008)
