Getting f-spot to upload to flickr on KUbuntu

Posted by Jim Morris on Sun Aug 27 20:29:43 -0700 2006

f-spot is a good photo importer and organizer, but it is a gnome application. When I installed it on KUbuntu, which uses KDE, using aptitude install f-spot it worked ok, except I got the following error when I tried to send my photos to flickr.

GLib.GException: There is no default action associated with this location

After some Googling I found this solution...

> gconftool-2 --set --type=string /desktop/gnome/url-handlers/http/command '/opt/firefox/firefox %s'

my Firefox is in /opt/firefox, so you may have to change that path, or even point to a different browser.

Make sure gconftool-2 is installed (it was on mine after installing a bunch of gnome apps).

It sets the default browser, and after this I was able to upload to flickr.
