On this site I clicked on the support link and a phone number popped up. It was formatted via the
tel: protocol, and as such was underlined and highlighted like a web link. On my phone, clicking on such a link opens my default dialer and places the call.
When links are not formatted via this protocol, my browser's Google voice plugin usually auto-detects the phone number and gives me a chance to call via Google voice. It would be nice if I could also do this for
tel: formatted numbers, or better yet, as I don't always have a voice session open, set
tel: formatted numbers be handled by
How can I fix my browser's handling of the
tel: protocol links such that it opens in
yate or google voice?
- In Chromium I get a warning saying that xdg-open will be used to handle the link, but when I click 'Launch Application' nothing happens.
- In Firefox, clicking on the link leads me to a blank page with the url tel:18003744432
In Konqueror clicking on the link produces this error:
Access by untrusted page to tel:18003744432 denied.
I'm using Linux Mint 16 KDE x64.
