    Default gnome-open: command not found

    Hi,

    Running on a fresh install ( + updates ) of 12.1 X86_64 with Gnome 3 I found out that xdg-open no longer works

    Code:
    robert@rmuntean-w7:~> xdg-open http://www.google.com
    /usr/bin/xdg-open: line 342: gnome-open: command not found
    How can I get xdg-open to work?

    Thanks,

    Robert

    - From my box:

    ab@mybox:~/Desktop> rpm -qf `which gnome-open`
    libgnome-2.32.1-3.1.2.x86_64

    Do you have libgnome installed? I'm using a KDE-based system and this
    is where that file (gnome-open) was found (I have a lot of Gnome stuff
    installed as well; get the best of all worlds).

    Good luck.

    That fixed it, thanks! Strangely enough it was not present on a stock Gnome 3 install.

    Personally this sounds like a bug in the xdg-utils package since it is
    depending on a file from another package that is not necessarily there.
    Modifying the xdg-utils SPEC file to require libgnome would fix this.
    Bug# 749612 in Novell's BugZilla database submitted (you're welcome to
    add yourself to the CC list if you'd like). It seems odd that something
    which appears to be desktop-independent would depend on gnome-open, but
    I have never used this command afaik so maybe that makes sense in a way
    I do not understand.

    Good luck.

    OK, I CC'ed myself to the bug report.

    A simple workaround is to run as root:
    Code:
    # sed -i 's/gnome-open/gvfs-open/' /usr/bin/xdg-open
