Description:

KDE-Mozilla-Attach-To-Email-Servicemenu is a simple kservicemenu item that allows you to right click on a file and choose attach to Mozilla Mail to open a new Mozilla mail panel with the file already attached.

I'd like to thank Austy and sp3k from Mozillazine for their help and patience. And anders of KDE help (irc.kde.org) for his tutorship. Without them I would not have been able to figure out the last line to make it work.

Install instructions: After downloading either KDE-Mozilla-Attach-To-Email-Servicemenu or edit-OpenOffice.org-Doc-As-Root bz2 file (or both), (as root) copy it (or them) to your /usr/share/apps/konqueror/servicemenus or where ever your konqueror servicemenus are.
That's it, just right click on a file and you'll see the option there!

Using mozilla --compose attachment didn't work for me as I already had mozilla running. I am using Mandrake 10.

I changed the command to use the following
mozilla -remote "xfeDoCommand(composemessage,attachment=file://the_filename)"

which works fine. Perhaps a wrapper script depending on whether mozilla is running would help?


Cheers,

Nick

Ok step one. Download the file.
Step Two. Decompress the file. Once you do you will have a directory called "KDE-attach-to-email-servicemenu". Within this directory is a text file called "KDE-attach-to-email-servicemenu.txt".
Step three. As root, open a Konqueror window and go the directory that contains the "KDE-attach-to-email-servicemenu.txt", copy it.
Step Four: Paste the text file into "/usr/share/apps/konqueror/servicemenus/".
Step Five: Change the file extension from ".txt" to ".desktop".

Now you can right click on any file and you will see an option "Attach To Mozilla Mail", click on that and a new mozilla mail composer window will pop up with the file attached.

I would also suggest you get dschrader's "Attach to Email Service Menu 0.6.1". It's a great kservicemenu.

If you need anymore help just email me at cyberpunkx@earthlink.net.

Thanks Borg Queen

Thank you, I was looking for this feature for a long time!!

Maybe you should create a desktop file instead of giving us txt, just rename and archive :) And maybe somekind of installer will be useful :)

Anyway, that's a good job, thank you!

Thank you prjanique.

I'm a newbie, so writing an installer is currently beyond me. Another reason I didn't provide an installer because not all distros put things in the same place (most do but not all). Its simpler in the long run, and much more educational, it do it manually.

And, the reason I used a txt file, was because I noticed that the desktop file would sometime lose some of the text info rendering it useless. Using a txt file prevents this and gives the user a way to replace the info. Just copy and paste.

And thank anders, Austy and sp3k, they lost their minds to my constant questions during the developement LOL.

Anyway, I greatly appreciate your comments.

Cheers, The Borg Queen

Well, I'm one of the authors of Mount ISO script - and when I started it, it was just a little servicemenu - and I made an installer which could find out all the paths and directories to install into. Maybe I (and 2sheds, a friend of mine who is the second author and the main developer of my project) could help you to provide a small installer? ;))

In order to prevent desktop file from missing info you better archive it (f.e. create tar.bz2 archive) :)

Thanks once again for your useful servicemenu! :)

Mount ISO! That's one of the most useful apps I've every collected. I collect Linux/KDE software, burn it to disk and pass it out to all the crack monkeys (whine-DOH!s users) I've converted into Nix Noobs. Mount ISO has made it very easy for me to create , keep and burn up2date ISOs. Thank you for your work.

As for help creating an installer, I would love to learn how to do that. If and when you have the time feel free to email me.

Currently I'm trying to go from Redhat, to Debian.
Sadly all the years spend as a crack monkey myself has left me playing catch up but I think I'm ready for a REAL Linux distro.

Talk to you soon,

The Borg Queen
