    Evolution Mail Browser Links

    Okie dokie... I went into the control center and set my default browser to be opera. Any html, htm, etc. files open with opera when I click them. However, if I receive an email through Evolution that has a URL on it, it will open with Mozilla. I can't find any option to change this. Has anyone had this problem and been able to solve it? Thanks.

    You will need GConf (and the gcond daemon running) to set this.

    If you do not have the Gnome Control Center installed, there is a way to
    set this using GConf directly:

    See, which values are stored in that sub-tree. Save the output to a
    file, so you can revert to those settings!

    $ gconftool-2 -R /desktop/gnome/url-handlers/unknown
    command = mozilla %s
    need-terminal = false
    enabled = true

    Now, this should enter all those values (at least, they work for me):

    $ gconftool-2 --set --type=string /desktop/gnome/url-handlers/unknown/command 'mozilla
    $ gconftool-2 --set --type=bool /desktop/gnome/url-handlers/unknown/need-terminal false
    $ gconftool-2 --set --type=bool /desktop/gnome/url-handlers/unknown/enabled true

    As you want Firebird rather than Mozilla, adjust the above command.

    Yep. This is the most requested FAQ on this mailing list...
