    Default Firefox and kmail


    Hei,

    Could anyone tell me how to enable Firefox to use kmail when clicking
    on e-post links.

    Cheers!

    Simply use Google and search for "firefox+kmail" and you'll find several
    how-to. May be they are not for Suse but Firefox is not distribution
    dependent.

    Open Firefox Edit -> Preferences -> Applications. In Content Type
    column for *mailto* select kmail as Action. If KMail isn't listed,
    select Use Other. KMail's executable is in */usr/bin/*.
    Good luck.

    Thank you both!
    I have actually tried to edit firefox according to ram88 suggestion, as
    well as several tutorials on the net, but maybe I didn't point to
    kmail's bin file, in any case I hadn't any luck. But I'll have another
    go.

    Cheers,

    Olav

    If the patch points to /usr/bin/kmail that should be OK. You have
    another problem. Is your KMail configured for an email client - can you
    send/receive e-mails?

    F_Sauce: I did not see anywhere that you said you're using KDE4. If you
    are using KDE3 then the proper command is /opt/kde3/bin/kmail

    If you were using /usr/bin/kmail with KDE3 that could be why you're not
    having any success.

    Let us know.

    Hei,

    Yes I can send receive e-post, no problem there . And I am using kde3.


    But hey, it's working

    I have always used 'about:config' and edited my mail setup that way,
    e.g. as described here:'Howto Setup firefox for kmail -- Ubuntu Geek'
    (http://www.ubuntugeek.com/howto-setu...for-kmail.html). I didn't
    know that I could configure it within the preferences menu, but this was
    far easier.

    Thank you all very much!

    Cheers,
    Olav
