NAME

gvfs-mime - Get or set mime handlers

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

gvfs-mime --query {MIMETYPE}
gvfs-mime --set {MIMETYPE} {HANDLER}

DESCRIPTION

gvfs-mime can query information about applications that are registered to handle a mime-type, or set the default handler for a mime-type.

MIMETYPE should be a mime-type such as text/plain or application/mbox. HANDLER should be the name of an existing desktop file such as gedit.desktop.

-h, --help

--version

--query

--set

EXIT STATUS

On success 0 is returned, a non-zero failure code otherwise.
