Package: xdg-utils
Version: 1.1.2-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,
 the version 1.1.2 of xdg-open brought support for specific handling in LXQt, but
this is definitely buggy and tries to use pcmanfm (non-existing in most cases) for
opening files/URLs (https://cgit.freedesktop.org/xdg/xdg-utils/commit/?id=6387086e4938d568c2bab185632f60e1619b3f68).

These are related upstream bugs:

There is also a discussion about this problem in LXQt upstream:

The proper solution for LXQt is as following:

Please, include this patch into the xdg-utils package for debian, as
there seems to be noone willing solve the situation xdg-utils upstream.

Thank you.
