    Default Windows Shorcut .lnk files

    I have many directories (a substantial database all nicely orgaanized) of windows .lnk files that I want to take advantage of under OpenSuse.

    Is there a way to "translate" a windows .lnk file into something equivalent?

    Should I abandon this and create an .html file?

    Any suggestions?
    Regards,

    I found a post with a bash script here: Convert Windows shortcuts into Linux links

    Needless to say, backup any work before you run a bash script to convert it. Can we ask what your link files are pointing to?

    I have a nice bash script usable in creating bash scripts you can find here: N.S.F. - New Script File, Bash Script File Header Creator - Version 3.0 - Blogs - openSUSE Forums
