Currently, the `xdg-open` command in xdg-utils 1.1.2-1 is not usable due to an upstream bug [1][2]. Now the bug is fixed [3]. Please consider backporting the fix to Arch Linux, thanks!


Additional info:
extra/xdg-utils 1.1.2-1

Steps to reproduce:
1. Run LXQt
2. Create an empty text file foobar.txt
3. Run `xdg-open foobar.txt`

Notes for packagers:
1. perl-file-mimeinfo is necessary to make xdg-open working under LXQt. That package is currently an optional dependency.
2. pcmanfm-qt should be added as an optional dependency just like exo or pcmanfm.
This task depends upon

The fix is backported in 1.1.2-2. I'm unable to test but this bug can probably be closed.
