gmc doesn't use URL handler specified in gnome control center??
Last modified: 2013-04-02 00:14:44 EDT
If I double-click on a .htm file with gmc, it picks an existing Netscape
window to display the file in, despite the fact that the URL handler for
"default" invokes gnome-moz-remote with the --newwin flag. If I invoke
gnome-moz-remote directly from a shell window, the --newwin flag works
correctly. So I can only conclude that gmc has its own idea of what to do
with .htm files instead of using the value set in the control center.
This leaves me wondering (1) if gmc doesn't use that value, what does? (2)
how *do* you get gmc to change the command it uses to display .htm files?
Using an existing Netscape window is a PITA, because sometimes that nukes a
complicated Java applet that was previously running in the window that gets
selected, or some other state that I wanted to keep.
gmc is now deprecated in favor of nautilus.
