WINE not showing as option for default program

Postby mkvaladez on Mon Apr 08, 2013 7:05 pm

Latest mint cinnamon all updated with default wine in the repos. When i right clock a .exe file and go to choose the default app to open with WINE does not show up as an option. Any way to add it or get it set manually?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Try this in terminal:
mimeopen -d yourfile
It should give you an option of what the default program should be (and Wine should be one of the options)... Even though the command is targeting a single file, it changes the default application for all .exe files.

Hope this helps...
