I have a xfreerdp connection file like:

xfreerdp /v: -sec-nla /cert-ignore

The file name is test.rdp and I can run it with the command bash test.rdp

But I need to run this file from GUI with double click or auto start when its downloaded from chrome.

I don't mind changing the filename extension.


If you have binfmt_misc mounted, run

echo :rdp:E::rdp::/usr/bin/xfreerdp:: > /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc/register

You can see a full write-up on the binfmt_misc file extension here: https://www.kernel.org/doc/Documentation/binfmt_misc.txt

It requires kernel support (every distro I know of ships it) as well as mounting the filesystem in /proc.
