When I go to Picasa Web to see another user's album, I can download pictures using Picasa with it. This launched a URL like
In Firefox, when I click this, I can choose to open it with
/usr/bin/picasa and it works fine.
In Chrome however, it doesn't suggest to choose an application to open it, but sends it to
xdg-open instead, which fails. When I try to launch such a URL with
xdg-open in a console, I get :
$ xdg-open picasa://foobar kio (KRun): ERROR: #### NO SUPPORT FOR READING!
I've found a post on a forum that says that you can configure
xdg-open associations in
$ cat ~/.local/share/applications/defaults.list [Default Applications] text/html=google-chrome.desktop
but I have no idea what to use for Picasa links. Furthermore,
man xdg-open indicates that
xdg-open supports file, ftp, http and https URLs.
I've also tried editing the file associations in KDE's System Settings to add a "picasa" entry in the "uri" group. I logged out and in again (just in case), but it still won't work.
Does anybody know how I can get Google Chrome to manage these URLs properly?
