update-desktop-database - Desktop file caching utility SYNOPSIS
update-desktop-database [--help] [--verbose] [--quiet] [filepath] DESCRIPTION
update-desktop-database creates cache files for desktop file MIME type mapping for improved MIME lookup performance. It expects to be given the path to a directory or directories containing a number of application installed .desktop files, e.g. /usr/share/applications, and writes a mime-info.cache containing cached information about the MIME types that each application can handle. If no directory is provided, this utility will use a default directory list as specified in the FreeDesktop MIME specification. This cache file is used to avoid a lot of system call and disk seek overhead in a number of applications. OPTIONS
The following options are supported: -?, --help Show help options. -v, --verbose Turn on verbose output. -q, --quiet Do not provide any output. OPERANDS
The following operands are supported: filepath The path to a directory or directories containing a number of application installed .desktop files. EXIT STATUS
The following exit values are returned: 0 Application exited successfully 1 Application exited with failure FILES
The following files are used by this application: /usr/bin/update-desktop-databaseThe command-line executable for the application. /usr/share/applications System desktop file directory ATTRIBUTES
