clicking links inside evolution does nothing
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:03 EDT
Description of Problem:
Clicking links inside evolution does nothing. If it is trying to start up
galeon to view them (which I don't have installed) that's a problem. It
should be trying to use htmlview.
It just uses the gnome-libs url opening bits and works for me both on my laptop
with a fresh install and my weird upgraded workstation setup.
where do you want me to look next? I'm running evolution under KDE on this machine.
I guess the question is what it's trying to launch. Probably gnome-moz-remote?
strace -f on evolution might show up the fork/exec.
Maybe also see if gnome-moz-remote works for you on the command line...
It is trying to run galeon. This is an upgrade 7.3 box.
If I run "gnome-default-applications-properties", I see that "Custom Web
Browser" is selected, with Command "mozilla "%s"". That is good.
"gnome-file-types-properties" shows that "HTML page" file type (text/html) has a
Default action of "htmlview".
As an aside, shouldn't the above two things be linked some how?
gnome-moz-remote doesn't seem to be working either. gnome-moz-remote --newwin
does nothing even when mozilla is already running.
My guess is that an old ~/.gnome/Gnome contains galeon and nuking that file
would revert to gnome-moz-remote.
Bingo. We gotta work on the upgrade path here a bit.
