What would be the easiest way to associate .doc files with wine MS Word? - so that when double-clicking on .doc file to have it open in MS Word? (and not to have just blank page open in MS Word)?

Thanks! :)

my way

1. create script msword.pl with follow code

my $path = `winepath -w \"@ARGV\"`;
$path =~ s%\\%/%g;
`wine "/home/USER/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Microsoft Office/OFFICE11/winword.exe" \""$path"\"`;

2. chmod a+x msword.pl
3. Now open .doc ->open with ->msword.pl
