Opening links from Evolution
I got a note from Rob Haynes, who found my June 4 entry about the trouble I was having with the Evolution email client not opening links in a browser. He wrote to tell me that he found the solution on an old Ximian mail list posting here. The solution is pretty simple:
- Run /opt/bin/gnome-default-applications-properties.
- Select "Custom Web Browser."
- Enter the appropriate command for your browser. For me that was "firefox %s".
Working with Linux can be so frustrating at times. I never would have thought to set GNOME applications properties to affect the operation of my mail client under KDE. It makes some sense, though, seeing that Evolution is a GNOME application.
