Linux URIs

This page presents the uri(7) man page, defining common URIs on GNU/Linux systems. This includes schemes common on GNU/Linux but not necessarily formally defined, such as the man: and info: schemes that both GNOME and KDE implement. If you're running a Linux system, you can just ask for "man:uri(7)" through a browser or type "man 7 uri" at the command line to view this information.

You can view uri(7) in one of the following formats:

  1. HTML
  2. Postscript
  3. PDF
  4. man page format

  3. GNOME
  4. KDE
  5. The Secure BROWSER convention (a convention for invoking user-defined browsers on Unix-like systems)
