Description

Original reporter says:
----
Sylpheed does not take into account the XDG default application the desktop environment should use for opening files of a specific MIME/Filetype.

Example:
. when I tried to open a PDF file, Sylpheed uses gimp to open the file.

Gimp is the first application in the /usr/share/applications/mimeinfo.cache entry defining which application(s) can read/open/associate with pdf files.

$ grep application/pdf /usr/share/applications/mimeinfo.cache
application/pdf=gimp.desktop;inkscape.desktop;org.gnome.Evince.desktop;libreoffice-draw.desktop;

It should use my desktop's default application from Debian Gnome default spec in /usr/share/applications/gnome-mimeapps.list to open PDF files.

$ grep -i pdf /usr/share/applications/gnome-mimeapps.list
application/pdf=org.gnome.Evince.desktop

This association can be found using the xdg-mime command:
$ xdg-mime query default application/pdf
org.gnome.Evince.desktop

I work around this by choosing "Open with" from the attachment tab and always using

xdg-open '%s'

but yeah, a native solution would be great.

This will work for most PDF files. However, loading, a file on Photoshop takes time and it allows viewing the file in a single page at one time. Therefore, it is certainly not the appropriate way out. Moreover, if a user has the sole –purpose just to read the document and not edit the PDF file.
