Honestly, I seem to be going around in circles on rc.xml. I think I'll save that "project" for another day.
We're back to acme. I finally figured out how to make it call the email and web browser programs you want it to. You probably still have acme installed. If so, your multimedia keys are already defined. They're just calling the wrong email and web browser programs. Let's fix that. Gnome configuration is where the values are stored. To begin with, open Synaptic, click Reload, click Mark All Upgrades. Then click the Search button. Enter gconf
in the search window. GConf2 should already be installed. If not, install it. Then mark the package gconf-editor
for installation. Then click the Apply button. Click Apply again in the small window that appears. Once everything is installed, close Synaptic.
The next thing we need to do is make a slight change to the gconf-editor.desktop file. We'll also make a backup copy of the file, just in case. You need to be root to do this. Do the following in a terminal.su -
cp /usr/share/applications/gconf-editor.desktop /usr/share/applications/gconf-editor.desktop.old
The desktop file will now be displayed as text in the leafpad window. Scroll to the bottom of the file. Find the line that begins with Categories=
. Change the line to what is shown below in green.Categories=GNOME;GTK;X-MandrivaLinux-System-Configuration-Other;
Copy the line from this post and paste it into the editor if you need to. Save the file and close leafpad. In the terminal, enter:exit
Now right-click the desktop to get the Openbox menu. Go to:
Applications>More Applications>Configuration>Configuration Editor
In the left pane of the window, go to:
In the chrome, ftp, http and https sections, change the web browser shown to the one you want to use. Double-click the command value in the right pane. It may show one of two different ways (as shown below) after double-clicking it. Either way, change the value field to the name of the web browser you want to use, then press [ENTER].
In the mailto section, double-click the command value and enter the name of the mail client you want to use. Close the Configuration Editor window, start acme, and your hotkeys should be working.
