Yes - works for me on FC4. Thanks Gids.

But it doesn't work on my SUSE 10.1 VM, running KDE desktop. The command
exists but doesn't fix the problem.

I should be able to add this to the install process of the autopackage.
But I'll report to autopackage too as a bug.

Can other people try this please?

Alex - I see that now it's working we get a separate instance of Xara LX
executed each time you double-click a XAR file. Charles mentioned this
and also that you'd said there was an easy fix. Is that the case?
