Hi All

The following url seems to be providing some good info on creating custom
file types on Linux:
http://developer.kde.org/documentation/library/kdeqt/kde3arch/mime.html

I don't know much about Linux but I'm interested in working out what bridges
need to be crossed to build my apps for Linux.

For starters I need to be able to create custom file types. I also need to
be able to open any file in its default application. I'm also wondering if
files can be opened in a running app on Linux (DDE on Win32, AppleEvents on
MacOS).

Cheers
