Description Sebastian Vahl 2007-05-07 14:03:15 UTC
Description of problem:
launchmail only checks if evolution exists. Is this is not the case an error 
be shown: "ERROR: The mail client evolution does not exist.  Please 
If /usr/bin/gnome-default-applications-properties doesn't exist that would be 

On KDE LiveCD we don't have gnome-default-applications-properties. So after a

2. Login into KDE
3. Launch launchmail
Actual results: Error Message

Expected results: kmail would be startet

Comment 2 Sebastian Vahl 2007-05-08 08:53:43 UTC
Working fine here.

htmlview-4.0.0-2.fc7 is in F7 now.  It falls back in the KDE-only case to a list
of "if it exists use it".  konqueror and kmail are at the top of that list.
