thank you for the article, i think what i need is the "Registering
.exe as non-native binaries (Linux only) " method.
The problem is i have already been able to directly run my app in
command line as following:
Desktop:~/MyLife/Mono/OFSM_IDE/bin/Debug# ./OFSM_IDE.exe
so i think there has been some config which registered such files to
use mono runtime to run, but the config only works for console
commands, not for gnome or x-windows clicks.
