Bad news, I tried the latest installer on Xubuntu (Ubuntu with XFCE
desktop environment) and it didn't work. Double-clicking on the XAR file
in Thunar (file manager) produces a dialog asking me which application
to use to open the file.
The latest autopackage on the web site is setup to install MIME types
and file associations for .xar and .web, using the facilities provided
by autopackage for this. Please can people try it and email the list
to let us know if it works or not and on which distributions. Please
include version of distribution and desktop used.
I’ve tried it without success on my FC4 and Ubuntu systems but some
other people have reported that it works. I’m assuming I should be
able to double-click on a XAR file on the desktop or in the file
browser and Xara LX should open the file. One of the guys at
autopackage has checked what we’re doing – he says it’s fine and that
our package works for him.
Ideally we should also be showing the LX icon for these files, but I
believe the current release version of autopackage doesn’t support
