Description dodo 2014-06-11 21:19:23 UTC
Created attachment 100904 [details]
email should be checked for non DE environments

without exporting DE variable there should be a check to see if user has set a mailto. Attached is a proposed change to xdg-email open_generic function. Probably needs to be looked at. Let me know what you guys think.

Okay great. Is there anything else you would like me to do to test or anything else? I tried removing gvfs and libgnome to make sure that the function would still work (it did here).

I was running into this same issue and after much searching I stumbled upon this bug report. It is marked as resolved, and Rex Dieter reported that the patch was committed, but I couldn't find neither the commit in the git repository nor the contents of the patch in the script in the current master branch. Maybe it was committed but got lost during some push? Thanks!

indeed, looks like I made a snafu here, will fix shortly.  thanks for catching my error
