Nasty Annoying File Association Problem

Nasty Annoying File Association Problem

Post by mpierc » Thu, 25 Jan 2001 10:54:08



Mandrake 7.2, Kernel 2.4.0, KDE2.1

Problem -
When I click on a URL, konqueror refuses to launch it. Stating file
cannot be found and it links it to a folder on my desktop.

I checked file associations which had Quanta listed for the mimetype,
*.htm & *.html

I removed Quanta and it still does the same. Can anyone tell me how to
set up this association properly?

Thanks,
Marvin

The application you want to use should be listed in the menu.  That is,
there should be an *.desktop" file for it in "/usr/share/applnk".

Find a file of the type you want to associate with an application.  Right
click it and chose: "Edit File Type".

1. nasty, nasty, dirty sendmail -

Greetings:

Recently the campus computer folks changed the default address

of their machines uses this address.  Turns out that this is
actually an alias for the machine mail.unm.edu .  Mail sent to

To make a long story short I can telnet the machine "unm.edu"
and I can also ping it but I can't send mail to it!  When I try
and send mail to a vaild user, in the example below me, this is
what I get .......

............................................................................



Saving message in /usr/people/mwfolsom/dead.letter
/usr/people/mwfolsom/dead.letter... Sent
Saved composition in ~/dead.letter.

...........................................................................

The same thing happens if I try someone elses address.  So, my take
on the error message is that somehow sendmail is looking at the

machine.

A fact that should be stated here is that our domain name is
"unm.edu".  Strikes me that this is the root of the problem -


I've looked at the faq and the O'Reilly book (yikes!) and am at
a loss what to do next -

Help!!!!!!!!!

Thanks -

Michael
