Gnome Open 0.9.3.0 Requires Restart
by J. Arnds
Open your mail attachments directly with your default gnome application.
ONLY for GNOME USERS!
Is Gnome Open still needed? Please read "Developer Comments" below.
About this Add-on
"Gnome Open" just redirects every attachment to GNOME/Nautilus and opens it via "gnome-open". To change the program being used just open your nautilus properties panel and set the app under "open with".
For Thunderbird 1.5 - 2.0.*: Gnome Open Version 0.9.1.5
Thanks to RobertJ for supporting me with some code from "MIME edit".
after restarting my work on OpenX (formerly known as Gnome Open) today I came to a central question.
Is OpenX still needed in Thunderbird/Firefox 3. I installed the latest version today and everything (filetype association) seemed fine.
So please report your experiences especially with the new version of Thunderbird. Is the "problem" now fixed out of the box? Is Thunderbird your files correctly/like nautilus? Are there some features future versions of OpenX should include?
Contact me via Launchpad (http://launchpad.net/openx), on our blog (http://opencoding.wordpress.com/gnomeopen/) or on the Mozilla Thunderbird Addon page (http://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/addon/12523/).
Thanks for your help,
