#22 aros: Non executable files can't be opened in name-mode listers on AROS


Listers work differently in Icon and Name mode. In the latter, if you open a non-executable file recognized via file types, a script is created (T:dopus-%lx-tmp). This script is executed via SystemTags in the launcher process (LAUNCH_DOS mode) using the Execute shell command. That command apparently fails to start the script, leaving a Tmp???????? file in T:. Maybe execute could be omitted and the script could be started directly by SystemTags if it had the right protection bits. The script created by DOpus5 can be started from the shell.

    I just tested this on my system and it works as it should. I have a PDF filetype that opens a PDF when I double-click on one. Other filetypes work as well. I'm using Dopus5 in name mode on it's own screen but NOT as WorkBench replacement. Maybe it's an AROS issue, patches I'm not using or different settings.

    Ah yes, this one is (was?) an ABIv0 only issue. The latest ABIv0-on-trunk fixed it, so I'll close the ticket.
