I'm testing Acrobat Reader 5.1 in Linux via Wine, and now I would like to 
test if is possible to associate Acroread with Opera 7.11 Linux via "open 
with other application".

For example:

I want to read the .pdf document that is stored in this link: 


1. Open Opera 7.11

2. file >> preferences >> file types >> uncheck "Hide file types..." >> 
highlight application/pdf >> click "edit" >> check "open with other 
application" >> fill with the full path to fake_windows Acrobat Reader 5.1 

In my case I filled as it follows: wine /home/carlos/c/Program 
Files/Adobe/Acrobat 5.0/Reader/AcroRd32.exe

But there are no application responses, nothing happens...:-(

I don't know either if is possible to call a wine application from a Linux 
native application and nor if my steps are corrects.

Can somebody clarify me about this case????
