[AG-TECH] Shared Applications (Browser, Presentation) in Linux

Greetings all

I have a question about the implementation of the Shared Browser and 
Presentations. I have read up on the mailcap setup for Windows and have 
the command configured to add those applications to the mime-type list. 
I have a working PIG and Node with Debian and have installed crossover 
office on both of those machines. Crossover Office used wine to start 
Microsoft applications and I also have this configured correctly.

My question is where can I specify the path of the executables so that 
the Venue client knows to look for those Wine applications? I can't seem 
to find anything in the SharedBrowser.py code that leads me to an 
application pointer of any sort. Am I barking up the wrong tree and need 
to do something different with the mime setup?
