Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 239885
htmlview launchmail/Preferred_Apps_Settings not recognized mail apps settings
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:07 EDT
Description of problem:
As of the early Fedora releases, there aren't respected mail apps switches
in preferred GNOME Mail Apps settings.
E.g. "mozilla -mail" or "seamonkey -mail" entered as preffered mail apps
launch mozilla/seamonkey browser, because "/usr/bin/launchmail" ignores (mail
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Launch in GNOME menu "System"
2. "Settings" -> ("Other Settings") -> "Preffered Applications"
3. In "Internet Apps" -> "Mail client" menu Mozilla/Seamonkey (installed
RPM from Extras rep) not appears as choice, and when added as "Custom"
app with "-mail" switch, this switch is perhaps passed to "/usr/bin/launchmail"
script from "htmlview" package, but isn't propagated to final application.
Multi-func apps have stripped functional switches and then start in default mode
(browser mode in mozilla/seamonkey case).
Not as too much (why this bug stay several distros back?), but as minimal accept
switches at "Custom" menu option (when desired client isn't no longer
detected among other FC/Extras clients)
