browse-url and netscape problem

Post by hollenb.. » Sun, 21 May 2000 04:00:00



Hi,

I'm trying to set up browse-url so that when I use mouse-2 on a url
netscape is started up. Alas: Netscape gives me a message:

   netscape-communicator: usage:
   OpenURL(url [ , new-window|window-name ])

The relevant customization-variables are the following:

(custom-set-variables
 '(browse-url-browser-function (quote browse-url-netscape))
 '(browse-url-netscape-arguments nil)
 '(browse-url-new-window-p t))

I've tried giving a netscape argument "%s" to netscape, but I don't
really know what I'm doing.

If somebody could help me out, kudos to them.

Regards,
Marco H

You probably just want to bind the function `browse-url-netscape' to
button2.

1. browse-url and replacing netscape nav with opera?

I've just switched to opera from netscape nav and would like to have
gnus/browse-url/whatever hand off urls to opera rather than netscape.
Is that possible?

For folks with rsi, one-handed web browsing in opera is pretty cool.

Thanks!
