Associating .fzz files with Fritzing in Linux

On Linux (Ubuntu), I want to be able to click on an .fzz file and have it immediately open in Fritzing. I don’t seem to be able to do this. I found a fritzing.desktop file in ~/.local/share/applications, but the MIME type is empty.

Can this be done?


It’s possible. I’ve done it with Fedora. But that was years ago, and I do not remember the details. I had to do a bunch of research first. It still works, so I have not had to touch it again.

Yeah, I keep forgetting…Linux was made for developers, not office workers. :smiley:

Thank you for taking the time to reply.

I don’t know if it helps, but with Debian I’d use Dolphin, right click the file and “open with …”. You can select the application from the treeview and should activate the “assign all” checkbox at the bottom.

Nevertheless… It will open Fritzing with a click on an .fzz or .fzpz file as shown in the screenshot, but it won’t load the file itself. Just an empty breadboard is shown. (The part should be loaded into “own” parts section.)

So at least it might point you into the right direction.
