    heres my applescript.

    tell application "Finder"
    activate
    select file "file.pdf" of folder "test"
    open selection
    end tell

    heres the button comand for the projector:

    on (release) {
    fscommand ("exec", "open");

    hopefully this of use to anyone interested. Please email if there are any questions.

    thanks again for all the help.
    Hi and thanks for the info.
    The applescript, does it have to be named "open.app" then or something?
    Because I don't see how fscommand ("exec", "open") knows what file to open.

    And is there another way needed to do this on a linux platform ?
    Or will it work just as well ?

    thanks in advance

    And here is all the code:

    BUTTON:


    on (release) {
    fscommand ("exec", "open");
    }


    applescript:


    tell application "Finder"
    activate
    select file "ym.pdf" of folder "test"
    open selection
    end tell
