Ubuntu 12.10 - Make PlayOnLinux show up in default program

Hi Expert,

I installed a fresh Ubuntu 12.10 with PlayOnLiinux and MS Office 2007. MS Office applications works just fine. I'm just trying to make the .docx use MS Words as the default application. I've been looking around the web and seen instructions saying I should try to set the .docx default program to Playonlinux.

I can't set .docx to use Playonlinux as the default program. Its not showing up on my default program list.

Can you please help direct me in the right direction?

Thanks
Rick

It seems that indeed it does what it is intended to do, but in the end it just opens a blank file, not the selected one. Are you also getting this?
