Almost, but not really. I expect MC to launch the program which is
registered for that file in the KDE (or GNOME) mime database. Why should I
have to duplicate that information manually in MC...?
In Windows, the feature works like this: it uses the "start" command (of
cmd.exe) which "opens" the file (or folder) as if I'd double-clicked it in
the Explorer. Perhaps there's a KDE (GNOME) equivalent of "start" which MC
could invoke. (HELLO MC DEVELOPERS :))
OFF: Also a good thing in Windows is that "start ." (or "start
any-directory") opens the folder in Explorer. I also miss that on KDE, where
I have to type "konqueror ." (or is there a "start" equivalent)?
