Sub_title: How to set Abiword and Gnumeric as predetermined programs
 

I installed SoftMaker 2008 in order to obtain a light .ppt program, but because its suit includes a word processor an a spreadsheet now my Lucid Puppy 5.2.8 has these as preferred options.
I would like to have Abiword and Gnumeric as my predetermined programs, but can't find the option to make the change.
How can I do it?

Opent as text /usr/local/bin/defaultwordprocessor
and replace second line with:
Code:
exec abiword "$@"

Do the same with /usr/local/bin/defaultspreadsheet
Code:
exec gnumeric "$@"


Or, download defaults-chooser-0.8.pet
Much easier way Smile

Greetings!

Will defaults-chooser-0.8.pet work in LightHouse 64 5.14-B4 Mariner? Thank you
