Windows File Associations in Wine UPDATE

So, my previous post showed how to manually update the registry to get Wine applications that launch other files to open them in Linux (so you don’t have to install Foxit for Windows to open a PDF that Evernote launches, for example).  Well, that was really clunky, so I made the following package that is less clunky:

tipsy.rar (right-click –> Save As)

Open up the bash script (tipsy.sh) for instructions, but basically, all you do is this:

  • copy the files to (root)/scripts/
  • open regedit (wine regedit in terminal) and import tipsy.reg (you can then delete it)
  • set the default value of every key in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT based on a relevant extension (e.g. [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT]/[.pdf]) to “tipsyfile” (no quotes)
  • close regedit and edit tipsy.sh to launch the relevant programs
