    Re: Thunderbird: Default app used to open links in email

    I changed the line in the script openlink.sh to
    the following and it works for me.
    (Have debian (knoppix) and Firefox 0.9 and Thunderbird 0.8)

    #!/bin/sh

    export MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME="/usr/lib/mozilla-firefox"

    url="$1"
    if [ "x$url" = "x" ]; then
    url="about:blank"
    fi


    # exec $MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME/firefox-bin "$url"
    /usr/bin/firefox "$url"

    change the code in mailto.sh to:

    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    
    url="$1"
    
    export MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME=/usr/bin
    
    $MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME/mozilla-thunderbird -P default -compose $url
    the mozilla-thunderbird script takes care of everything

    sorry... doesn't work :'(

    EDIT: Found a solution: I experimented a bit and now it works with this skript:
    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    
    #script author: asterix
    #http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewto...=136157#136157
    
    export MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME=/usr/lib/MozillaThunderbird
    
    if [ $(ps aux | grep thunderbird | wc -l) -gt 2 ]; then
    # thunderbird is running (thunderbird est lance)
        thunderbird -remote "mailto($1?subject=$2)"
    
    
    else
     #Thunderbird is not running (thunderbird n'est pas lance)
         $MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME/thunderbird -P default -compose mailto:$1?subject=$2;fi
    Thanks everybody for your help!
