I wanted to open a pdf at a particular page, the instructions under
org-file-apps suggested using
(add-to-list 'org-file-apps '("\\.pdf::\\(\\d+\\)\\'" . "evince -p %1 %s"))
This doesn't work because the regular expression doesn't parse the link but
the path. Therefore the ::(\d+) part is not being matched.
I had to write my own version using both file and link but maybe there is a
better way -- or a more elegant solution than what I have below. Please
let me know.
(split-string link "::"))
(concat "evince " file
(concat " -p "
(nth 1 mylink))))))
(message "Running %s...done" cmd)
(start-process-shell-command cmd nil cmd)))))
