ed2k links vs firefox 3.5.x & gnome
« on: October 05, 2009, 09:35:52 AM »

Hi all,

may be it started to fail when I upgraded to firefox 3.x but I'm not sure. Anyway I've found this post and now I can get ed2k links from firefox:

1. shutdown firefox
2. delete *.ed2k.* entries from prefs.js ($HOME/.mozilla/firefox/xxxxx.profile/pref.js)
3. Configure gnome to handle ed2k scheme (ed2k://)

$ gconftool-2 -t string -s /desktop/gnome/url-handlers/ed2k/command "/path/to/ed2k %s"
$ gconftool-2 -t bool -s /desktop/gnome/url-handlers/ed2k/needs_terminal false
$ gconftool-2 -t bool -s /desktop/gnome/url-handlers/ed2k/enabled true
4. start firefox

Now ed2k appears in the applications list (preferences) like "mailto" or "http" and works again.

I'm running Fedora 11 64bit :

Hope this helps!
