mimeopen - Open files by mimetype


mimeopen [options] [-] files


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.


-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.

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.


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