In the location bar, type:

In the 'Search' box at the top of the page enter:
network.protocol-handler.external.mailto

If you get a result, double-click it to change it true.

If you don't, right-click the pane and select new > boolean.

Give it the name "network.protocol-handler.external.mailto" (without quotes) and set the value to true.

It should ask for the default email handler, but if it does not or you wish to change it later...
Open:

There is a drop down menu to select the email client.

Yeah, not exactly intuitive is it!

Before you have run "rfkill unblock", what is the output from running this (where $INTERFACE needs to be replaced with your interrface, wlan0 or whatever):

rfkill list wlan gives:

Code:

   Soft blocked: yes
   Hard blocked: no
2: phy0: wlan
   Soft blocked: no
   Hard blocked: no


Without actually having hands-on at your computer, I don't really know what else to suggest.

You should be able to follow a logical procedure to determine why the code that I supplied did not work, whereas what you did before did work.

Subject description: gtk issues for Quirky-tahr

2. Quirky-tahr has a gtk issue that makes both the fcitx and SCIM Chinese input platform unable to run.

3. Because Quirky-tahr and Quirky 6.x are very similar, I have resolved the above problem with the following quick fix:
a. replaced all the gdk and gtk system files in Quirky-tahr by those from Quirky 6.1.4
b. this was automated by creating a special gtk patch pet called quirky-tahr-6.0.1-zh-patch.pet. By installing this pet, all the gdk and gtk system files in Quirky-tahr will be replaced by those files from Quirky 6.1.4
.


Quirky T2 (6.1.4) uses GTK 2.20.1, whereas Quirky Tahr uses GTK 2.24.x.
If you put the 2.20.1 files into Quirky Tahr, some applications will report missing symbols and won't run.

For the record can you describe in detail how you managed to get Google Chrome running in Tahr?


Have you tried Chromium?

It is in the Ubuntu repository. I just noticed it there, using the Quirky Package Manager, haven't tried it though.

I started up links 2.8 and went to the nluug ftp [/url]

I had the same experience trying to download a devx package for Quirky Tahr at nluug.


Hmmm, I wonder if the new SM 2.24 that I have compiled, has that problem? When you install it, let us know.

The dependency you need is: libegl1-mesa-drivers

Which you can install with the PPM, but make sure that you also install all dependencies.

I just did a quick check in the PPM, and that package 'libegl1-mesa-drivers' is shown as a dependency.

That would mean you did not use the PPM properly?

After clicking on the 'cheese' package, you then click the "Examine dependencies" to get a list of all deps, then you install.

One bit of advice about using the PPM/QPM.

Ubuntu Trusty Tahr is in alpha status, and the repository changes frequently, making the local package database out-of-date.

Therefore, I recommend click the Configure button in the PPM and update the database -- no need to choose the "updates" repository, as there isn't one yet.

It requires a restart of the PPM afterward.

That one is installed but cheese still doesn't work so it must be something else causing the problem.

Oh, ok, sorry for suggesting that you didn't use the PPM properly. That's a mistake newcomers make, not clicking that "Examine dependencies" button.

I don't have time right now, but I will have a go at installing cheese this evening.

I tried Chromium... it said:
Quote:
Chromium can not be run as root.
Please start Chromium as a normal user. To run as root, you must specify an alternate --user-data-dir for storage of profile information.
I do not understand what to do. But I like to play and may solve.

Also after PPM install, it said 'gstreamer' was needed.
But I have service_pack-6.0.3_TO_6.0.4-tahr.pet installed, which was to add gstreamer.

EDIT:
Well I tried and it did not work:
Code:

The hint as to the cause of the problem is given in the final window after installing, where it reports two libraries, libwayland-egl.so.1 included, as not being in the library search path.

Indeed they aren't, they are here:

/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/mesa-egl

To fix this, do this:

Code:
# echo '/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/mesa-egl' >> /etc/ld.so.conf
# ldconfig


Then cheese will start. On my laptop though, it reports can't find any webcam.

I have fixed this problem so it won't happen with any other packages installed either. Edited /usr/local/petget/installpkg.sh and removepreview.sh. The fix will be in the next release.

I entered in rxvt:
# echo '/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/mesa-egl'>>/etc/ld.so.conf
# ldconfig
ldconfig: /usr/share/gdb/auto-load/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libglib-2.0.so.0.3904.0-gdb.py is not an ELF file - it has the wrong magic bytes at the start.

#

Then in lxterminal:
sh-4.1# cheese
libEGL warning: GLX/DRI2 is not supported
libEGL warning: DRI2: failed to authenticate

** (cheese:11512): ERROR **: cheese-window.vala:1197: Error: Failed to open file '/usr/share/cheese/cheese-main-window.ui': No such file or directory

This netbook has ati graphics but is using this driver if that makes a

product: RS880M 01.00

I tried installing cheese on my desktop install using an usb webcam
and applying your fix from the previous message.
This desktop has ati graphics as well but is using a different driver
than the netbook, not modesetting but this:

0.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Oland [Radeon HD 8570 / R7 240 OEM]
oem: AMD ATOMBIOS
product: OLAND 01.00

X Server: Xorg Driver: vesa
X.Org version: 1.15.0
dimensions: 1920x1080 pixels (524x292 millimeters)
depth of root window: 24 planes

direct rendering: Yes
server glx vendor string: SGI
server glx version string: 1.4
OpenGL vendor string: VMware, Inc.
OpenGL renderer string: Gallium 0.4 on llvmpipe (LLVM 3.4, 256 bits)
OpenGL version string: 2.1 Mesa 10.0.1

Now cheese starts but I get the same result as you do on your laptop
so part of the problem on the netbook is the graphics driver.

lsusb shows this:
Bus 003 Device 006: ID 045e:00f7 Microsoft Corp. LifeCam VX-1000

It works not too badly in guvcview, a logitech usb webcam that I tried doesn't work well in guvcview.
