Description Mark 2018-05-20 00:37:29 UTC
First noticed in xdg-utils v1.1.3-1. In xdg-open's function open_lxde(), it's using shell operator '-a' when it should use '&&'. That causes all URLs to be opened with pcmanfm, and that's broken for URLs such as https://example.com.

Here's the fix:

--- xdg-open.bad
+++ xdg-open.good

     # pcmanfm only knows how to handle file:// urls and filepaths, it seems.
-    if pcmanfm --help >/dev/null 2>&1 -a is_file_url_or_path "$1"; then
+    if pcmanfm --help >/dev/null 2>&1 && is_file_url_or_path "$1"; then
         local file="$(file_url_to_path "$1")"
         # handle relative paths
