Links will not open from chat windows under Linux

Description

Links do not open from the chat window of spark if you are running under Linux. This is because the code tries to launch Netscape via a shell command, and if this is not possible on your machine, the links will not open.

Hi Will,

Thanks. The workaround worked for me.

Kind regards,

Hi,

I simply ran:
cd /usr/bin
ln -s firefox netscape

And was then able to click on links, and have them open in Firefox.

Hi Will,

Could you please give me some specific instructions on the workaround. Where do you go looking for Netscape, and as such what is the name and location of the symlink I need? I know to make Firefox the destination of the symlink, but what should the source be?

Kind regards,
Ian

As a workaround, you can create a symlink to firefox (or other browser) from netscape.
