If it contains EMC2 compatible g-code you can just add the extension to the [DISPLAY] section of the ini file as shown in the Integrators Manual.

First does the file contain EMC compatible g-code? Just rename one to .ngc and see if it will open in EMC.

The ini info is in the Integrators Manual.

It's not a Linux thing.
You probably need the info here (it is in the manual too)

I believe .plt files are normally files prepared to send to a plotter, based on HPGL file format.
So a CAD program gives you the option to save in that format so it can be sent directly to a plotter.
As such they do not contain the g codes EMC would be looking for.
Can you save them in another format?

You may also look at Chapter 22 of the User Manual for Image to G code for .png .gif .jpg files.

You can find the manual at...

If you export as dxf you will need a program to convert it to a g code that emc understands.

Take a look here...
