Description: xdg-open and xdg-email reimplementation for containerized apps
Applications running in a Flatpak sandbox cannot normally launch arbitrary
subprocesses outside the container to open files and URLs. This
package provides reimplementations of the standard xdg-open(1) and
xdg-email(1) command-line tools intended to be run inside the container.
They use the D-Bus session bus to communicate with the xdg-desktop-portal
service outside the container.
To avoid conflicting with the standard xdg-utils package, these tools
are installed in /usr/libexec/flatpak-xdg-utils. This directory can be
added to the PATH when preparing a container, or used as a target for
container-specific symbolic links in /usr/bin.
This package also contains flatpak-spawn, which can be used by Flatpak
applications to launch processes outside the container. Unprivileged
applications can use this mechanism to launch a helper tool such as a
thumbnailer in a version of their sandbox with more restrictive
permissions, and specially-privileged applications with the 'devel' flag
(such as GNOME Builder) can use this mechanism to bypass the sandbox and
run commands on the host system.
This package is normally only useful if you are using Debian packages to
construct a Flatpak runtime or a similar container, and should not be
installed on a normal Debian desktop system. On desktop systems please
install the reference implementation of the xdg-open and xdg-email tools,
which can be found in the xdg-utils package.
If this package is installed in a non-Flatpak environment for testing,
it will require the dbus-session-bus and xdg-desktop-portal packages
(which would not be useful to install in a container).
Description: as-installed tests for flatpak-xdg-utils
flatpak-xdg-utils provides reimplementations of the standard xdg-open(1)
and xdg-email(1) command-line tools intended to be run inside a Flatpak
container. They use the D-Bus session bus to communicate with the
xdg-desktop-portal service outside the container
This package contains as-installed tests, for use with autopkgtest and
similar frameworks. They use a mock implementation of xdg-desktop-portal.
