0.8.5 Desktop.browse() does not start browser
I am successfully using Desktop.browse(url) on a Windows machine by simply dropping the two dll files in one of the %PATH% directories.
I am not getting this to work on my Debian Linux machine.
Firstly, could you please clarify that all that is required is that the run-time shared library loader (ld.so) finds libjdic.so.
I have tried
a) setting LD_LIBRARY_PATH
b) dripping the library in one of the paths specified in /etc/ld.so.conf (which I would prefer)
Desktop.browse() does not throw an exception. Just nothing happens.
The default browser on this Linux machine is Galeon 1.3.15. On the target machines it will be Epiphany (The web browser for the GNOME Desktop).
I am assuming that Desktop.browse() will start any default browser?!?!?!
