What is the problem exactly? Where is the bugreport?

If you download view3dscene from
https://castle-engine.io/view3dscene.php , it is a zip file, and the
binary is available whenever you unpacked it.

If you installed view3dscene from binary packages, it is available in
/usr/bin/ , but you should probably not hardcode this path. It is
available on $PATH , and you should call it assuming that.

There's nothing special about launching view3dscene. I mean we have a
number of command-line options (
) but from X3D-Edit you probably just want to launch it with 1
parameter - filename of X3D scene. view3dscene isn't different from
freewrl or other viewers in this regard.

>> Agreed, please let me know how to set defaults correctly.  X3D-Edit includes author-convenience functionality for launching related X3D viewers and authoring tools effectively.  The source includes user-modifiable default installation locations for Windows Mac and Linux, so I'm happy to include any updated default values whenever possible.
