Gnome and KDE appear to use a definition file to assist defining dektop GUI related items (xdesktop) Desktop Entry Specification http://standards.freedesktop.org/desktop-entry-spec/desktop-entry-spec-latest.html

An important part of this is:

Icon Icon to display in file manager, menus, etc. If the name is an absolute path, the given file will be used. If the name is not an absolute path, the algorithm described in the Icon Theme Specification will be used to locate the icon.

To open a file with it's default application on Linux you can perform gnome-open, kde-open.

Using System.getenv("XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP"); we ca get the desktop mode, (Gnome, KDE, Unity)

Do you want to put the code in the open-with branch? The name is probably not ideal, but it will simplify everything.
I will try to have a look at the latest change tomorrow
