[sane-devel] PATCH: XSane hardcodes Netscape as browser
Thu, 03 Jul 2003 19:06:35 +0200
for displaying HTML help pages XSane calls always the web browser
Netscape and does not try another browser if Netscape is not installed.
As newer distros do not ship Netscape any more (or they ship it only in
boxed editions) it is often not possible to call the help pages out of
Daouda Lo from MandrakeSoft (daouda at mandrakesoft dot com) has made a
patch (for XSane 0.91) to use the BROWSER environment variable which we
use in Mandrake Linux from now on as long as the problem is not solved
I have made the patch available here
Oliver, can you apply it to XSane, so that the browser problem will be
solved in 0.92? Thanks in advance.
