My problem is that mailto links do not seem to work properly. I'm using Sylpheed, but that's not specific to the problem. I created a file at
/usr/share/applications/sylpheed-compose.desktop so that mailto links open the proper window within sylpheed, but none of the information from the mailto url seems to matter because the compose window is always empty.
I've ensured that the line
x-scheme-handler/mailto=sylpheed-compose.desktop is in my
Here is the content of
[Desktop Entry] Name=Sylpheed Comment=E-Mail client Exec=sylpheed --compose MimeType=x-scheme-handler/mailto; Terminal=false Type=Application
Can anybody please tell me what I'm doing wrong and how I can get the information from the mailto url to fill in the compose window like it's supposed to?
