NAME

mimeopen – Open files by mimetype

SYNOPSIS

mimeopen [options] [-] files

DESCRIPTION

This script tries to determine the mimetype of a file and open it with
the default desktop application. If no default application is
configured the user is prompted with an “open with” menu in the
terminal.

To use this script you need the freedesktop mime-info database and the
freedesktop desktop-file-utils package. See
File::MimeInfo::Applications(3) for more details.

OPTIONS

-a, –ask
Do not execute the default application but ask which application to
run. This does not change the default application.

-d, –ask-default
Let the user choose a new default program for given files.

-n, –no-ask
Don’t ask the user which program to use. Choose the default program
or the first program known to handle the file mimetype. This does
not set the default application.

-M, –magic-only
Do not check for extensions, globs or inode type, only look at the
content of the file. This is particularly useful if for some reason
you don’t trust the name or the extension a file has.

–database=mimedir:mimedir:…
Force the program to look in these directories for the shared mime-
info database. The directories specified by the basedir
specification are ignored.

-D, –debug
Print debug information about how the mimetype was determined.

-h, –help
-u, –usage
Print a help message and exits.

-v, –version
Print the version of the program and exit.

DEPRECATED

OPTIONS

-L, –dereference
Follow symbolic links. Deprecated because this is the logical
default for this command. Ignored silently.
