Description of problem:
When clicking on a link in a mail message, evolution recently started opening
gedit instead of my preferred web browser, galeon. It is set correctly in the
Preferred Applications preference. I'm not sure this if this is an evolution
problem or a gtkhtml problem. I don't think the evo rpm has changed recently but
this link problem has appeared in the last week or so.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open an email with an embedded link
2. Click link
Actual Results: gedit opens with the web page of the link displayed.
Expected Results: galeon (or whatever my preferred application is) is opened
with the link displayed.
Similar problem here - links in Evolution and Straw (which uses gtkhtml) will
not open, no matter what the preferences are set to.
Evolution gives this error at console: gnome_url_show: The default action does
not support this protocol. Straw's error is worded similarly.
I am seeing a variation of this problem. When I click on the link - sometimes
nothing happens. Sometimes Galeon pops up...
Can't seem to reproduce the problem, however.
This is due to changes in gnome_url_show(). Alex was looking at this
This seems to be fixed on at least two of my four rawhide systems. But on one,
it still opens gedit. Any clues as to where I could look to fix it? Everything
is set correctly in the Preferred Applications Applet, and I realize that that
applet recently changed. I've quit and restarted evo but it still uses gedit.
This works everywhere for me now.
I'm closing this then
