How to Integrate ED2K Links into your webbrowser
QUESTION: How can I make xMule take ed2k links from my browser?
------- KONQUEROR -------
you can find it by file names ended with .protocol
kinda `find /usr -name "*.protocol"` or `find /opt -name "*.protocol"`
or even put / to path if you want.
2. If the first was successful, create a file named like e2k.protocol in
the mentioned directory:
- You must have write permission to the mozilla-installation-directory for this. If you've installed mozilla to /usr , you'll have to be root probably.
- The downloadable precompiled version of protozilla apparently does _not_ work with debian mozilla packages. It _does_ work together with the precompiled version of 1.2.1 available at mozilla.org for example [or you can build both mozilla and protozilla yourself]
2) This step is only necessary if you had to start mozilla as root in step 1). If you did step 1) with the same user as you normally use, you can skip it
as root do:
cp -r /root/.mozilla/PROFILENAME/RANDOM.slt/protozilla/
[copy protozilla-configuration from root's home to user's home]
chown -R YOURUSER.YOURGROUP protozilla"
[cd to user's mozilla config-dir and change file-ownership parameters]
USERNAME: name of your normal, non-root user
PROFILENAME: name of the profile you'll want to use
RANDOM: random alphanumeric string, autogenerated by mozilla
YOURUSER, YOURGROUP: user and group of your normal user
3) setup a protocol-handler for ed2k-links:
- cd to ~/.mozilla/PROFILENAME/RANDOM.slt/protozilla/protocol
-create a file called "ed2k.cmd" with the following content:
[do this with your favorite text-editor, the file doesn't have to be executable]
