In Windows and OS X I can launch an application for a file by coding:

f.launch

This doesn't seem to work on Linux. Is there a way to make it work?

Thanks, In advance. :D

I believe this is what is explained in the next thread down. See if it helps.

It does expalain how to do it if I know the name of the progrm I'm trying to execute. On Windows and OS X the OS launches the program that is associated with the file. For example, if it is ia .doc file, word is launched. I don't know enough about Linux to know if you can set up file associations or not.

If you run KDE as your desktop environment you can add .rbp to the following:

MENU
Control Centre
KDE Components
File Associations

Then Add to a group and work your way through the screen, they are fairly straight forward.

For other desktops Google for "adding mime types linux (DESKTOP)", where (DESKTOP) is your desktop of choice.
