    Question How to make ' Send Link ' call Evolution from Firefox

    I use Firefox(3.5) to Browse the Internet , I have been trying to send links to friends by email through Firefox's ' Send Link ' option , but unfortunately I don't know the way to configure the Firefox to open the Compose box of Evolution with the desire linked placed in the message box of the Evolution Compose Window .

    Thanks for your help .

    I thought that evolution was the default mail application and the send to link would open evolution. But just go to program defaults and set the mail application to default. I have mine set to Thunderbird and it works quite well. only gripe is if i have have thunderbird open then it does not work.

    Setting program defaults don't seem to work for me, i am running ubuntu remix off of a flash drive adn evolution is set as the default e-mail program. But anyway ...

    What happens when you click a send mail link? You can test here. If FF has not been configured to handle such links then a Launch Application window should pop up click the choose button. naviagte to /usr/bin and find the evolution file and click it and then click open. be sure the remember my choice ... box is checked and then click ok.

    Thank you y-lee , It worked , as you said the Launch Application appeared ( actually this was the place where I get stuck and prior new nothing to go further than this ) , I chose ' Choose ' went to /usr/bin , found 'evolution' and the next instant the Compose box opened with the URL in the text box! .
