xdg-mime query filetype does not work on KDE 5 (Fixed in Portland)

Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
xdg-utils (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

System information:

cat /etc/lsb-release:

apt-cache policy xdg-utils:
  Installed: 1.1.0~rc1-2ubuntu10
  Candidate: 1.1.0~rc1-2ubuntu10
  Version table:
 *** 1.1.0~rc1-2ubuntu10 0
        500 http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ vivid/main amd64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

Expected behavior:

The command "xdg-mime query filetype $FILENAME" returns the MIME type of the specified file.

Actual behavior under KDE 5:

No output to stdout. If the specified file is executable, it is executed, e.g. "xdg-mime query filetype /usr/bin/xclipboard" executes the program xclipboard.

Source of error:

The xdg-mime script checks in the function "info_kde()" only for KDE version being 3 or 4. The new Kubuntu release bundles KDE 5 which is not checked against.

This bug is fixed in the Portland repository: http://cgit.freedesktop.org/xdg/xdg-utils/commit/?id=18645a50fe25064b42ba421e231869c6063705f7
