Re: Execute associated image viewer or media player on button click

xdg-open is by far the easiest way to open a file no matter which
desktop the user is running. In old linuxes that command wasn't
available but today it seems to be available. This is also why I posted
the alternative gnome-open which is always available but is desktop

xdg-open is a shell script so you an peek and see how they do to detect which desktop is running. But why 
going through all the hassle when xdg-open does everything? :)

Thanks for taking the time to answer the extra questions.  Looks like xdg-open is the way to go.
