Annotation of pkgsrc/misc/xdg-utils/DESCR, Revision 188.8.131.52
1.1 wiz 1: The xdg-utils package is a set of simple scripts that provide basic
2: desktop integration functions for any Free Desktop, such as Linux.
4: They are intended to provide a set of defacto standards. This means
7: * Third party software developers can rely on these xdg-utils for
8: all of their simple integration needs.
10: * Developers of desktop environments can make sure that their
11: environments are well supported
13: If a desktop developer wants to be certain that their environment
14: functions with all third party software, then can simply make sure
15: that these utilities work properly in their environment. This will
16: hopefully mean that 'third tier' window managers such as XFCE and
17: Blackbox can reach full parity with Gnome and KDE in terms of third
18: party ISV support.
20: * Distribution vendors can provide custom versions of these utilities
22: If a distribution vendor wishes to have unusual systems, they can
23: provide custom scripts, and the third party software should still
24: continue to work.
