URL protocol handlers in Ubuntu: zotero://open-pdf


I'm wondering if someone here has some experience with URL protocol handlers in Ubuntu that could help me out.

I keep my notes outside of Zotero for a couple of reasons, and want to link to the pdf or the entry in Zotero. Ideally, I'd be able to click the link and Zotero would open with the right paper selected. I've seen that it's possible to use zotero://open-pdf in Windows and macOS to make Zotero open a specific pdf. Any idea on how to set this up in Ubuntu?

I found this: https://askubuntu.com/questions/514125/url-protocol-handlers-in-basic-ubuntu-desktop which seems to go in the direction I want, and could open Zotero from a link, but how can I specify which pdf/item to open? Is it possible?
