    Executing a Linux application from within Wine

    Im not sure if this is possible or if it makes any sense

    I am using a windows ssh client called Tunnelier to connect to my server windows server at the office. The program has an option to execute a command when the connection is established and I wan't it to load rdesktop (or any linux rdp client for that matter). Only problem is it only wants to load from within the windows api. Is there a way to perhaps make a batch file that will call up rdesktop from within X and not wine?

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    To the best of my knowledge, commands issued in WINE by the user are limited to WINE (with the exception of remote commands). So I am not sure how you would go about that.

    False: you CAN invoke linux from wine

    False: you CAN invoke linux from wine.

    But doing so implies to do some Registry tricks.
    I.e., you should REGISTER (in the Window$ sense, of course) the linux app you are trying to use, as the window$ program associated with some file extension.

    I have no time now to fully explain the mechanics of this registry trick. I will post that as soon as I can.
