    Question Opening pdfs with wine foxit reader by default

    hi,
    I've installed foxit reader through wine and it works fine
    the problem is every time i should right click the file and choose open with foxit reader (I find it in open with menu


    but when I go to the default app menu I can't find it and there's no way to add a new app to that menu


    so, How can Make Foxit Reader ( a wine app) the default one

    Have not tries this but Foxit Reader will install as a native Linux Application
    see here

    It may be easier to make it the default if its not going through Wine first
