Additional Comments

In order to enable integration with Firefox: Go to Tools/Options/URL and MIME type settings/URL Types Choose Custom settings and enable DDE. DDE settings are not really relevant, but you need DDE to avoid agent telling you it could not open the URL when in fact it is already loaded in the browser. Application: Z:\usr\bin\firefox %1 DDE Message: "%1" Application: Firefox Topic: WWW_OpenURL Method: Request ---------------- A couple of things I forgot to mention by Shingo Tamai on Saturday August 7th 2010, 9:51 1) I did not install Agent, I have just copied it over from my windows partition 2) I have MS core fonts installed (Arial and Courier New as default fonts) and I have turned off antialiasing in Gnome altogether. ---------------- Admin: Rating changed to reflect actual result of Shingo
