Trying to open any file in the XFE file manager, I have to associate the program to its file format, such as PDF format have to inform the evince program, as shown below. I wonder if there is a simpler way to associate all file extensions with their respective programs by XFE.
xdg-open (its full path is
/usr/bin/xdg-open and it should be installed by default; no need to install it manually).
xdg-open is a program that "opens a file or URL in the user's preferred application. If a URL is provided the URL will be opened in the user's preferred web browser. If a file is provided the file will be opened in the preferred application for files of that type."
