- Enter about:config in the address bar
- Right click on the list, select New, then Boolean; enter network.protocol-handler.external.ed2k as Preference Name and true as Value
- Now right click, select New and String; enter network.protocol-handler.app.ed2k as Preference Name and /usr/bin/ed2k
I can't enter the string. I mistakenly entered the String info as a boolean and never got to enter the /usr/bin/ed2k info and now I can't delete the entry nor can I create the string. Help?
Awesome, thanks. My only change was the system-specific install location, "/usr/share/edonkey/edonkey2000" instead of "/usr/bin/ed2k".
Now if only eDonkey had a Web interface like eMule. Or, eMule had a linux installer that did not have a dozen confusing dependencies...
This did not work on Mac OS X. For the path, I tried /Applications/eDonkey2000/edonkey2000.app/Contents/MacOS/edonkey2000 and /Applications/eDonkey2000/edonkey2000.app Firefox still reports "ed2k is not a registered protocol". I restarted FireFox, and found the same problem. Ideas?
I confirmed the correctness of the path by opening Apple Terminal and pasting:
Ed2k links also work in Safari for me. Don't know how, because Safari's Preferences are very limited, and about:config does not work at all. It's probably buried in one of the XML plist files somewhere.
