Since I just posted this same question earlier in the day, and received a fairly quick answer, I'll go ahead and volunteer the information I was given by Jeff Kreis <[jeff--rebol--net]>. To quote Jeff: To find the browser, Unix REBOL/View pays attention to the MOZILLA_HOME environment variable. Failing that, it looks for netscape in /usr/local/bin and /usr/bin. Yes, the unix browser determining algorithm is rather simple minded. So for me, setting MOZILLA_HOME to /opt/gnome/lib/mozilla did the trick. Yes, it's simple, but what matters is that it works. Hope this helps, and thanks to Jeff as well. .troy --- /************************/ /* J. Troy Piper */ /* <[jtp--dok--org]> */ /* Ignotum per Ignotius */ /************************/
