Executing or Launching Programs

A selected executable or associated file can be launched with Batavia.  The system-associated MIME type handlers can be viewed from the options menu.

The desired file must first be selected in a pane.  To execute or launch the file, press the Enter key.  Make sure the current user has permission to execute the selected file or associated program.

If the selected file is not executable, Batavia will attempt to launch the file with the associated MIME handler.  For example, clicking file.rm will open the file with Realplayer.  Batavia automatically recognizes some MIME types, which can be viewed by clicking the File pulldown menu, clicking Options, and expanding the MIME type hander folders.  New MIME types can be configured as well.
