FoxitReader ghost

Gnome Evolution - General mailing list
Why does Evolution still show "FoxitReader Document attachment" for pdf attachments after I've removed FoxitReader from my (Ubuntu) system and the default pdf viewer is Evince? When I open the pdf attachment it uses Evince, so why does it mention "Foxit Reader"? There is not even any mention of "Foxit Reader" in '.config/mimeapps.list'

What does "gvfs-mime --query application/pdf" show?

Stop poking around in files; use the tools.

(It says "gvfs-mime" is deprecated, so...)

        Hi,
Evolution relies on the data returned from glib's gio, which might be
quite the same as what you see from the above command. I've no idea
where it gets it from. Does the list of available applications shown in
Evolution match the list returned from `git mime`? Could there be a
leftover Foxit .desktop file (not necessarily named foxit.desktop) in
the system? What about that pdfarranger.desktop or
display-im6.q16.desktop? Those look suspicious/custom.
        Bye,
        Milan

"pdfarranger.desktop" is legitimate (the new name for pdfshuffler), 
but I can't find "display-im6.q16.desktop" anywhere in my home directory, 
using: find . -name *.desktop

Why would you expect to find it in your home directory?  It should be
in /usr/share/applications the contents of which should be managed by
the package(s).

I did the same search in /usr/share/applications and there is no instance
*foxit* there, and I removed "display-im6.q16.desktop" also, which made
no difference.

All this sits on top of XDG, so it should be a ".desktop" file
somewhere.

Official locations are:
/usr/share/applications/
/usr/local/share/applications/
~/.local/share/applications/

Well, this is quite a mystery, because there's no trace of foxit in any of
those folders.

Maybe this is useful:

org.gnome.Evince.desktop

I don't know what "display-im6.q16.desktop" points to.
