If the file extension is 'rb' executes without errors, doesn't run anything and doesn't return. I am running Ubuntu and the file opens with gedit without problems. Any reasond for this?

Your help will be greatly appreciated,

I'm sorry, perhaps it's me, but I don't understand your question or how it relates to Swing/AWT/SWT/JFace. Could you please give us more details? For more information on what I'm looking for, please have a look here: TellTheDetails.

Much luck!
