How to incorporate WordFlashReader into your Ubuntu Main Menus

Ok, you've just installed WordFlashReader on your Ubuntu machine. And now you want an easy way to access it. Doing the following three things will make it very easily accessible:

  1. Aliasing it in your .bashrc
alias wfr='[installation path]/wordflashreader.linux.bin'
  1. Launch it directly from your browser using Launchy (firefox addon). Insructions are here.
  2. Add it to your Ubuntu main menus.
In order to do this, go to System->Preferences->Main Menu. Choose which category you wish to add you menu item to. I chose the 'Office' category. Click 'New Item' on the right side of the window.

Name: WordFlashReader
Command: [browse to the place where you installed the program and select wordflashreader.linux.bin]

Next, click the button on the upper left and corner of the Create Lancher window. Again, browse to the WordFlashReader installation path and click 'Open'. Two icons will show up. Choose WFReader.ico and hit ok. Hit ok one more time and the next time you open your Ubuntu menu it should be there. Cheers!

Hi,
Couldn't find another way to easily contact you, so post this comment about WordFlashReader here.
I recently installed WFR on my Ubuntu distro and I really enjoy it. One question though: Is there a way to install it on Mac OSX too? I would really love to use it on my Macbook Air...

You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something which I think
I would never understand. It seems too complicated and very broad for me.
I'm looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

I was curious if you ever considered changing the page layout of
your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect
with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having
one or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?

I do not know whether it's just me or if everyone else experiencing issues with your website. It appears as though some of the text within your content are running off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them too? This may be a problem with my browser because I've had this happen before.
