thunderbird interoperability with openoffice
I'm having trouble getting thunderbird to play nicely with others, by which I mean getting mailto: links to open a new message in tbird and to get openoffice's "send as attachment" feature to work.
The only interaction here I really care about is the OO one, the others are just tests to try to figure out what's going on.
openoffice will open a new tbird message with the document as an attachment if tbird is not running. If tbird is already running, openoffice will try to launch a new instance, requesting a different profile
firefox and thunderbird do work well together. firefox will launch tbird if not running, will recognize it is running if it is, and will open a new message with the address from the mailto link
konqueror will launch thunderbird if it is not running, and if it is running it will recognize the fact, but in neither case will it open a new message.
opera doesn't seem to do anything at all with regard to tbird.
All of these programs work correctly with kmail and, for the most part, with mozilla.
Thanks for any help. I've posted to the open office and thunderbird forums so far, to no avail.
Slack 10.2 (pretty vanilla with my own kernel)
firefox, opera, etc. does it matter?
