mailto: .. attach= is not working for firefox nor chrome, so can't email a .klm file from Google Earth?
I love having Google Earth on Debian, but when I try to email a
.klm view file using
web browser mailto: handler:
I get the following error message:
I'm not seeing this error message in Windows 10. Instead it creates the email as expected with the attachment.
Here's what I've already tried to fix this:
1) Fixed the environment (a couple of places to be sure):
# cat /etc/environment BROWSER=/opt/firefox/firefox
# tail -2 /etc/.bash.shared export BROWSER="/opt/firefox/firefox"
Now when I open terminal I get this:
$ env | grep BROWSER BROWSER=/opt/firefox/firefox
2) Also I tested both Firefox and Chrome to see if the
attach= worked in a
mailto: URL, but so far I can't seem to this to work. I'm trying to browse to a URL something like these:
(where the URL encoding is %22 is for a double quote (") and %2f is for a slash (/)).
I've also tried
@attachment= rather than
Both Thunderbird and Chrome open a new email window, and the subject and body work as expected, but the attachment is not present.
So first, I think I need to get
@attach= to work with Firefox (or Chrome), but how?
