Thank you for you answers.

Essentially, Edit Preferences --> Netscape --> Applications
Change the program to reference "****/soffice %s"

I also learned about ~/.mailcap, where this information is replicated
by the Netscape helper.

Chris Graves <>
Viet_Q_Hoang <>
        Microsoft Word Document /.../soffice %s

Todd Herr <>

/home/therr/Office51/bin/soffice -f %s
Mime types and suffixes:

   Word - application/msword
   Excel - application/
   PowerPoint - application/
