Newbie question about default browser.
[1/3] from: jtp::dok::org at: 30-Oct-2001 1:11
Greetings! I have just recently begun to learn REBOL (last night, in fact, and yes, I read about it on slashdot. :), and I have installed both the core and view versions on my windows and linux boxes. However (and I'm sure someone else has asked this before, but I can't seem to locate any info on the web), using View in windows and clicking any of the 'sites' brings up IE, but in linux, I get nothing but an error about not being able to find netscape (I use mozilla.). So, obviously my question is, is there a way to tell View to use mozilla (located in /opt/gnome/lib/mozilla) so I can utilize REBOL to its fullest potential? Thanks for the time to answer a question I'm betting has been asked more than once, .troy --- /************************/ /* J.

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. -jeff

RE: [REBOL] Newbie question about default browser. rebol looks for netscape, one place is /usr/local/bin/netscape. so if you place/link there something, it would be started. one drawback is argument is sometimes like -remoteopenURL(/home/volker/rebol/view/local/index.html, new-window) don't know if mozilla use the same? -Volker [jtp--dok--org] wrote:
