I have browsed the lisp code of org.el
where  is mentioned:
"External applications for opening `file:path' items in a document.
Org-mode uses system defaults for different file types, but
you can use this variable to set the application for a given file
extension.  The entries in this list are cons cells where the car identifies
files and the cdr the corresponding command.  Possible values for the
file identifier are
\"string\" A string as a file identifier can be interpreted in different
               ways, depending on its contents:

               - Alphanumeric characters only:
                 Match links with this file extension.
                 Example: (\"pdf\" . \"evince %s\")
                          to open PDFs with evince.

What does it mean system defaults?
What command is used for getting default programs?
xdg-mine or another?
Thank you in advance

Hi folks,

I would like to export some .org file into .pdf file.
This should also open PDF after export is done but it does not.

This is done by command C-c C-e d.
In some case emacs freezes.

Could you please help me?


I have find out that if file org/org.el where are defined variables like org-file-apps
is mentioned
("\\.pdf\\'" . default)

When I changed them to e.g xpdf then pdf file is openned properly.
