Ok, thanks. I've set org-file-apps like that now

org-file-apps '((system . "xdg-open %s")
                            ("\\.pdf\\'" . system)
                            (directory . system)
                            (auto-mode . emacs)))

and it seems to work.

IMHO should mailcap be deprecated in favor of xdg-open.
