How To Make KDE Run Gambas Executables Automatically

Note: $YOURKDE is the installation directory of KDE in your system. In my Slackware 10.0 it is /opt/kde. To know yours just type in a console:
$ kde-config --prefix.

1. Creates a MIME type for Gambas executable

Create the text file $YOURKDE/share/mimelnk/application/x-gambas.desktop.

Open it and add these lines:

[Desktop Entry]
Comment=Gambas executable

2. Creates a desktop file for the interpreter

Creates the text file $YOURKDE/share/applnk/.hidden/gbr2.desktop. Notice the dot before hidden.

Open it and add these lines:

[Desktop Entry]

3. Adds Gambas executables description to the KDE magic file

The next file already exists!!! You just have to edit it... Be careful!

Edit the file $YOURKDE/share/mimelnk/magic and add this line:
0      string     #!/usr/bin/gbr3    application/x-gambas

That's all.

Restart your kde session. The Gambas executables will have the generic icon "binary" and you will be able to run them by just clicking on them.
