Utilities to uniformly interface desktop environments
The xdg-utils package is a set of simple scripts that provide basic
desktop integration functions for any Free Desktop, such as Linux.
They are intended to provide a set of defacto standards. This means
that: * Third party software developers can rely on these
xdg-utils for all of their simple integration needs.
* Developers of desktop environments can make sure that their
environments are well supported
If a desktop developer wants to be certain that their environment
functions with all third party software, then can simply make sure that
these utilities work properly in their environment.
