To see what association, if any, has been created, try this:

- right click on a .BGL file
- select Properties
- click on the 'open with' tab

If there are no programs listed and/or none selected you can click Add
and then use 'Custom command' to add the appropriate command. This or
something similar should work with any Linux distro that uses Gnome as
its desktop manager. I read it out from Red Hat Fedora 14, which uses
Gnome 2.

I'd suggest the best way to work out what the custom command should be
is to start by looking at a Windows install to see what file association
it uses for a .BGL file. Use that to create a Wine command that can
successfully process the BGL file. Now use that as the basis for the
required 'custom command.
