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.
Comment 2 Preston Brown 2002-10-02 10:29:55 EDT
where do you want me to look next?  I'm running evolution under KDE on this machine.
Comment 3 Havoc Pennington 2002-10-02 11:08:04 EDT
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...
Comment 4 Preston Brown 2002-10-02 11:11:00 EDT
It is trying to run galeon.  This is an upgrade 7.3 box.
Comment 5 Preston Brown 2002-10-02 11:13:37 EDT
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?

Comment 6 Preston Brown 2002-10-02 11:15:32 EDT
gnome-moz-remote doesn't seem to be working either. gnome-moz-remote --newwin
does nothing even when mozilla is already running.

Comment 7 Havoc Pennington 2002-10-02 12:22:57 EDT
My guess is that an old ~/.gnome/Gnome contains galeon and nuking that file 
would revert to gnome-moz-remote.
Comment 8 Preston Brown 2002-10-03 11:36:29 EDT
Bingo.  We gotta work on the upgrade path here a bit.
