Re: MC and external apps

Some samples what worked for me.
note that -geometry command tells xterm the size (not mc),
also note the & to regain control,

usually /etc/mc/mc.ext will give more samples.
in /etc/mc/mc.ext first match rules!


Open=if [ "$DISPLAY" = "" ];   \
  then play %f;                \
  else (xterm -bc -geometry '90x11+200+100'               \
     -fn -*-fixed-medium-r-normal-*-9-*-*-*-*-*-iso8859-1 \
     -fb -*-fixed-medium-r-normal-*-9-*-*-*-*-*-iso8859-1 \
     -e "mplayer %f" &); fi

Edit=if [ "$DISPLAY" = "" ];   \
    then mcview;               \
    else (audacity %f > /dev/null 2>&1 &); fi
