Description mal 2000-09-10 17:23:13 EDT
gnome-terminal highlight an URL (shown in the terminal as underlined text).
The problem is that it does not do this correctly
in case URL has % symbol in it.
If you type in prompt
and move mouse to this line the entire URL will be highlighted
but if you type
the symbols after % are just ignored, what is incorrect.
% is a standard way to encode symbols in URL.

Another thing, the URL is shown as it possible to click on it,
but if I click nothing happens.
Should a web browser be started?

Probably we just need to add % to the regular expression used to parse URLs in
gnome-terminal.c. You should be able to right-click on a URL to open it.

A plain rightclick doesn't always work, but ctrl+rightclick does.

This has since been fixed.
