Thread: KWrite

  1. #1

    Default KWrite

    Since taking up SUSE 12.2 recently, I have used KWrite now and then. No complaints, very nice and easy to use. But today I wrote my first shell script using KWrite. The script runs successfuly! However when I click, in Dolphin, to open the file, to make a little change, it pesters me insisting I use some other editor. I installed emacs - one of its offerings, but I cannot make head or tale of that one and prefer to stay away from something so complicated. I checked "do not ask again" and now, when clicking the file in Dolphin, it will not open at all, clicking has no effect whatsoever.

    The only way I can open the filet and save a change, is to first open KWrite and then open the script file from there..........that's going back to pre-Windows 95 days!

    Any ideas? Thank you and cheers.

    Dolphin is recognizing the file as a shell script.

    If you click on it, then it probably wants to run that script.

    You should be able to right click, then look on the menu for "open with" and find kwrite there.

    Right-click on the file: Properties. Choose the little wrench icon next
    to the file type. Move 'kwrite' to the top of the list of applications
    and save.

    Good luck.

    Yes, that did the trick! Thank you.. I never thought about trying a right-click. Shows how set one gets in one's ways.........especially at my age.......70+.
