You're almost there, but Wing currently requires you to do this in 2
steps: first define a new mime type for .ui files and then define a
display command for that mime type.  To define a new mime type for .ui,
add the following to your preferences:

main.extra-mime-types = { 'ui': 'text/x-qt-designer' }

Then add the following to define the display command:

gui.file-display-cmds={ \
   'text/x-qt-designer': [ 'designer3 %s &', 'designer %s &' ], \


Run by Mailman v 2.0.8
