Question Open multiple files in different instances of a program


Using Ctrl+A to select some photos (.jpg files)
I right click and get the "Open with..Image Viewer".
Thats great and all, but it doesn't open each photo in it's own instance of the program and thats what I really want to happen.

Anyone know how to make this happen?
Using Ubuntu 7.10

Depends on the program you're using. Kuickshow in KDE does exactly that by default. Probably, your image viewer (which one is it?) can be configured to do the same.
