Not sure if this is intentional or not.

I have wp8 installed on my home machine.  The executable lives in
/opt/wp8bin/xwp (or somewhere like that, I'm at work now).  Kde knew
that wp documents belonged to wp, but it didn't know where the
executable was.  Adding it with the browser seemed to work, but wp would
not start by clicking on a document.  I had to put a shell wrapper in
/usr/local/bin.  Something like:

/opt/wp8bin/xwp "$@"

(susbstitute the correct directory, of course)

Telling kde to use "xwp" for wp documents then allowed you to open them
by clicking on them.

Seems like an exe *has* to be on the path.

Where is the file to edit to change $PATH ???
