And same thing for mailto: links, with evolution- as only
mailer installed.

Comment 2 Julien Olivier 2004-09-06 20:32:15 UTC
After re-setting my prefered mailer from "evolution-1.6 %s" (which was
the mistaken default) to "evolution %s", I can open mailto: links.

And I manager to work-around the https: bug by doing:

ln -s /usr/bin/mozilla /usr/bin/epiphany

It seems that epiphany is configured as the default handler for https
locations, even though I've never installed it...

Comment 3 Zack Cerza 2004-09-24 16:42:56 UTC
Things that are broken now in gconf://desktop/gnome/url-handlers :

about/command (stuck as epiphany)
https/command (stuck as epiphany)
mailto/command (stuck as evolution-1.6)
unknown/unknown (stuck as epiphany)
