GNU/Icecat, GNOME support

Postby UriyZenkov » 2009-09-21 14:15

I have this problem:
Distribution Debian GNU / linux 5.0.3
Xfce windowing environment
GNOME-programs do not open links browser GNU / Icecat.
What do I need configuration files?

Can you translate that error message to English?
Which Gnome programs?

The one thing I do is make sure icecat is set as gnome-www-browser and x-www-browser in the debian alternatives system.


How did you install icecat and does it show up as a choice when you use the commands
update-alternatives --config x-gnome-browser
and
update-alternatives --config x-www-browser

Can you translate that error message to English?

An error occurred when running the default action script associated with that address
Decided !:
cp cp /usr/bin/xfbrowser4 /usr/bin/gnome-www-browser
chmod a+x /usr/bin/gnome-www-browser.
gnudude, thanks for the hint.

When you open a link from the Gnome-programs Icecat opens two tabs: http://www.%.com / and (my) http://linuxforum.ru/index.php?showtopic=100435
I try to alter the script /usr/bin/gnome-www-browser.
Now it looks like this:
Code: Select all
#!/bin/sh
URL = $1;
exo-open $URL;
exit 0

But nothing turns.

In gnome everything is opened with gnome-open. try in the terminal: gnome-open http://google.com
If your icecat is default, it will pop up.

I do not know English and so I apologize for the incorrect translation. This theme I began to discuss on the above site, but there is no one I could not help.

Че ты хочешь?
На русских форумах можешь даже не искать. Там никто ничего не знает.

Uriy:

Your English is better than my Russki yazik. So help me to understand, please. You have gotten Icecat to work with a Debian xfce desktop. However, when you open it, you see two tabs. One of those tabs is the one you asked for, and the other is
http://www.%.com

Am I correct?

And, what you want is to get rid of the automatic opening of that second tab? That second tab is giving you the error message you showed originally. Am I also correct on this second point?

You also said, on the Russian forum, that you did not install Icecat the official Debian way, but you got it to work. Did you answer gnudude's questions?
How did you install icecat and does it show up as a choice when you use the commands
update-alternatives --config x-gnome-browser
and
update-alternatives --config x-www-browser
If you did, I don't see the answer, but I think you have already answered them for yourself.

However, if I understand the issues correctly, what we really need to help you with is how to set your default pages when you open Icecat. If I recall correctly, gnudude uses Icecat, but I don't. He should know, therefore, about Icecat specifically. If he doesn't there are other Icecat users out there on this forum.

But, again, IF I understand the problem correctly, resetting the default opening pages should be no more difficult than using Icecat preference settings from inside the program itself. Just close all tabs except one, and use that tab to set your home page. That's too easy, though, you would have already done that - so I must be missing something.

If nothing else, I hope I am able to understand your problem well enough to clarify it for other forum members. Let me know if I can help further.

http://www.%.com
Am I correct?

No, the first tab is http://www.%.com (non correct url) and the second tab is my selected URL.
Installation Icecat:
Code: Select all
su
echo "deb http://gnuzilla.gnu.org/download/debian/ deltah-icecat universe main" >>/etc/apt/sources.list
echo "deb-src http://gnuzilla.gnu.org/download/debian/ deltah-icecat universe main ">>/etc/apt/sources.list
aptitude update
aptitude install icecat

Decision problem:
su
create file /usr/bin/gnome-www-browser:
Code: Select all
nano /usr/bin/gnome-www-browser
#!/bin/sh
URL=$1;
xdg-open "$URL"
exit 0
Ctrl+o and Ctrl+x

I accidentally discovered that if open a link from another user, tab http://www.%.com not open.
So, I deleted all hidden GNOME and Xfce folder in my home folder and all problems solved. But I had no desire to learn GNOME and Xfce.
How did you install icecat and does it show up as a choice when you use the commands
update-alternatives --config x-gnome-browser
and
update-alternatives --config x-www-browser

su
update-alternatives --config x-gnome-browser, gnome-www-browser, x-www-browser, www-browser
No alternatives. I first heard about update-alternatives.
What nothing turns?
In gnome everything is opened with gnome-open. try in the terminal: gnome-open http://google.com

Write /usr/bin/gnome-www-browser
Code: Select all
 
#!/bin/sh
URL=$1;
gnome-open "$URL"
printf "\"%s\"\n" "$URL" >> "$HOME"/URL.txt
exit 0

one click http://www.smila.com (processor loaded and browser not opened)
cat /home/ura/URL.txt
Code: Select all
"http://linuxforum.ru/index.php?act=Msg&CODE=03&VID=in&MSID=226540"
"http://linuxforum.ru/index.php?act=Msg&CODE=03&VID=in&MSID=226540"
"http://linuxforum.ru/index.php?act=Msg&CODE=03&VID=in&MSID=226540"
and to infinity.

kill -s 9 number of gnome-open -- can not closed, so init 1

Has anyone understood anything?
If you say:

delete the dotted hidden folder for your icescat in your home directory, "mozilla" or whatever it is called there, and you are done. I guess, you don't need to mess around so many config files.

And in general, use Firefox like all normal people do. It has an option to remember the tabs or just quit before closing.
