I have Notepad which I open with "Wine".
I want to do that when I want to open file .txt, it will be opened by Wine Notepad.

How can I do that?

    only wondering why you want opening Windows Notepad for the text files...

  • I think WineBottler may help with this. I haven't actually tried it yet, so I can't say for sure.

You will need:

  • make a custom launcher/wrapper for the notepad, e.g. WineNotepad.app
  • and in CMD-I you must change the default application for .txt files to the new launcher - and "change all"

how to create the custom launcher is here

  • thanks for this answer ^__^ but it's pretty hard.. maybe you have something more easy?

  • yes. Install Parallels and the the launcher/wrapper will be created auto-magically... ;)

  • I stuck here: --edit wineLocation if your wine install is not the default location<br /> set wineLocation to "/usr/local/bin" What the means "wine install"? its at Applications, no? ohh ye and more question: can i get your skype/messenger? :)

  • i'm not an wine user, so don't know what wine you got and where it is installed. Maybe some real wine user will give a better advice. ;)

  • About Parallels: IF i want it, I need to download all window system and my computer will be more slower, thats right?
