Re: Why doesn't iceweasel work with iceape

In trying to configure iceweasel to do the same (iceweasel defaults to

mailto option, and it displays the options "Use Gmail", Use Yahoo!
Mail", "Always ask", and "Use other", which does not give access to
iceape mail composer.

I just try than on Squeeze and it works, but trick is that when you browse "Use other" choose iceape (/usr/bin/iceape).

That seems to work.

Whilst it opens up an iceape browser window with the URL "mailto...", which then opens up an iceape mail compser window, it does work, if not directly.

I had previously tried to find iceape using the paths /bin and /sbin, but didn't find it there; the required path was, as you have indicated - /usr/bin/iceape.

Thank you for that.
