Description :
The xdg-utils package is a set of simple scripts that provide basic

They are intended to provide a set of defacto standards.

   for all of their simple integration needs.

   environments are well supported
*  Distribution vendors can provide custom versions of these utilities

The following scripts are provided at this time:
* xdg-desktop-menu      Install desktop menu items
* xdg-desktop-icon      Install icons to the desktop
* xdg-icon-resource     Install icon resources
* xdg-mime              Query information about file type handling and
                        install descriptions for new file types
* xdg-open              Open a file or URL in the user's preferred application
* xdg-email             Send mail using the user's preferred e-mail composer
* xdg-screensaver       Control the screensaver
