        import gnome
        gnome.url_show("file:" + NETCONFDIR + \

hmm... maybe you have not installed mozilla... nevertheless, htmlview should be
used. Lets hear, what our gnome team has to say about that?
Comment 3 Havoc Pennington 2003-05-30 23:35:28 EDT
I thought I made it use htmlview, but maybe I'm thinking of gnome-libs 1.x instead 
of libgnome.
