Using Evolution Email With Firefox Browser
Posted 12 April 2005 - 05:01 PM
I have searched for a solution, but have not found one which is clear enough for me to understand how to resolve this issue. I'm guessing I may have to make a symbolic link or something, between Evolution and Firefox, but I'm lost as exactly what to do and how to do it. I'd sure appreciate some assistance with this one.

open your shell and type:
gconftool-2 --set /desktop/gnome/url-handlers/http/command -t string 'firefox %s'
gconftool-2 --set /desktop/gnome/url-handlers/https/command -t string 'firefox %s'
This will set firefox as default browser for evolution (in a non Gnome DE). Im using another linux so please be sure to check what your firefox link is.
Of course you can use this link to any browser you wish.

Go to KDE Configuration Center..Select Components...File Association...Text....HTML in the MIME type tree.
Select ADD...under "Application Preference Order." Then, write the command "firefox %U" and press OK. Apply and close out of the Configuration Center. After doing this, when I click on a link in an Evolution email, the Firefox browser opens just as it should!
