OpenSolaris 2009.06 - man page for gnome-vfs.applications (opensolaris section 4)

gnome-vfs.applications.4(4)		   File Formats 	      gnome-vfs.applications.4(4)

NAME
       gnome-vfs.applications - GNOME VFS application registry

DESCRIPTION
       GnomeVFS is obsolete.  Refer to the GNOME Desktop System Administration Guide for informa-
       tion about how to register MIME type information with the GNOME desktop.  The GNOME  Desk-
       top System Administration Guide can be viewed with yelp(1).

       The GNOME MIME magic and MIME info files (see gnome-vfs-mime-magic(4)) enable GNOME VFS to
       associate a data file with its icon and description. The GNOME  VFS  application  registry
       provides a way to launch the applications associated with such files.

       The  registration  of applications to various MIME types is specified in text files placed
       in the /usr/share/gnome/application-registry directory. GNOME provides a default  registry
       file  called  gnome-vfs.applications. Vendor-specific registry files can also be placed in
       this directory. This information is used extensively by nautilus(1), the GNOME  file  man-
       ager.

EXTENDED DESCRIPTION
       The  format  of the application registry file is simple. Each application entry is made up
       of a name followed by a number of key-value pairs. The application  name  must  have  been
       specified in one of the .keys files.  The minimum required key fields are as follows:

       command		       The command to execute.

       name		       The descriptive name of the command, which will appear in the Open
			       With   menu in Nautilus.

       can_open_multiple_files The value of this field can be true or false.

       expects_uris	       The value of this field can be true or  false.  This  field  tells
			       Nautilus  whether the application can accept http:, ftp: and so on
			       specifications to open at the command line.  If this is true,  you
			       must add the supported_uri_schemes field.

       requires_terminal       The value of this field can be true or false.

       mime_types	       The  list  of  comma-separated mime-types defined by MIME magic or
			       MIME info files.

       Optional field:

       supported_uri_schemes   Specifies the list of protocols supported by the application;  for
			       example, http, ftp, file, telnet, gopher.
