Thank you...as I thought, Email is already set to Thunderbird and application/pdf is already set to Document Viewer. 1. But if I type xdg-open foobar.pdf it opens GIMP (ie behaviour is false, but it's what the applications are doing). BTW file -i correctly identifies PDF files as application/pdf 2. If I type xdg-open mailto:pe...@silmaril.ie a Thunderbird Compose window opens (ie behaviour is correct, but all my browsers fail to invoke it). Is it possible that for  something is overriding the file identity? ///Peter _______________________________________________ enlightenment-users mailing list email@example.com https://lists.sourceforge.net/lists/listinfo/enlightenment-users
