Description Geoff Reedy 1999-10-31 07:04:01 UTC
With the redhat patches to the gnome-help-browser to disable http support there is no way to follow an http link in any documentation. Instead of http being UNKNOWN it should somehow call gnome_url_show, opening the http document in netscape or whatever the user has set http URLs to open with. ------- Additional Comments From 10/31/99 16:06 ------- I worked out a patch. It could probably be a little cleaner but it works. As an aside, it'd be nice if October GNOME could be released as a "Package Enhancement."

There are future plans to use mozilla for the help browser and http transport will be supported.
