I’m an emusic subscriber and I found it remarkably challanging to get the emusic downloader (emusicdlm) to open the emusic download files. Well after some digging and find various hints on the topic I found a comfy way to do it.

So open up a text editor or use cat to populate a file named ~/.local/share/applications/emusicdlm.desktop with the following
[Desktop Entry] Name=emusicdlm GenericName=eMusic Download Manager Comment=Download emusic Exec=/home/matthias/bin/emusicdlm %U Terminal=false Type=Application StartupNotify=true MimeType=application/vnd.emusic-emusic_list; Icon=accessories-text-editor Categories=GNOME;GTK;Utility;
The interesting bit there is the MimeType … well, it’s interesting to me.
I don’t recall if I logged out and back in to get this to activate.
After that I was able to double click emusic files and have the download manager do it’s thing.
