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

   environments are well supported

* xdg-desktop-icon      Install icons to the desktop
* xdg-desktop-menu      Install desktop menu items
* xdg-email             Send mail using the user's preferred e-mail composer
* 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-screensaver       Control the screensaver
