View Full Version : [ubuntu] wine - naultilus - how do I open files using a wine app?

May 27th, 2008, 04:27 PM
I am running Autocad 14 under wine (great for viewing & printing, not so good for editing). What I want to be able to do is find a dwg file with nautilus, double click it and have it open with autocad. How can I do this?

Right now I have to start autocad (it opens up in the virtual C: drive), go to "open file", step back all the way to "/" and then find my mounted directories, and then find the drawing file (PITA).

This can't be that hard but I haven't found a howto yet.

There's a guide for this in the Community Documentation here (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wine#head-c65dfece90dfd8c4cf9ab68a10a7854e7c81bbe2).

Fantastic. Thank you very much. I knew it had to be simple.
