I want to open images using Fast Stone Image viewer in Ubuntu. I have installed the application in wine. How to associate jpg file to always open in Faststone that installed in wine.
All you need to associate file of some type to be handled by some app, also by wine app, you can find in folder
you will need to open
and find needed type, like this:
as you see there are two files which are relative to this type, if the file stand first it will be the default handler for this type, the other will be shown in "Open with" menu
this is example of .desktop file
[Desktop Entry] Name=PHP Expert Editor Exec=wine start C:\\\\Program\\ Files\\\\PHP\\ Expert\\ Editor\\ 4.3\\\\phpxedit.exe z:%f MimeType=image/jpeg Type=Application StartupNotify=true Path=/home/m/.wine/dosdevices/c:/Program Files/PHP Expert Editor 4.3 Icon=/home/m/.local/share/icons/10de_phpxedit.0.png
the whole point in the "Exec=" line at the and "z:%f"
Exec=wine start C:\\\\Program\\ Files\\\\PHP\\ Expert\\ Editor\\ 4.3\\\\phpxedit.exe z:%f
if you don't have this line you should have an error
Can not open file "/home/...."
while trying to open some file with your app, because of wine paths are like windows disks and to open your file, for example "/home/picture.jpg" in wine you should use path "z:/home/picture.jpg"
Right click, Open with other application. If your application is not available in the list, use custom command and put
wine ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Yourapp/Yourapp.exe in the box.
Right-Click on a jpg file and choose Properties. Then check if your program name is available on the 4th tab, and if it is, select it.
