I am working with Vinux Development which is a blind friendly Linux system
right now based on Ubuntu, but we also have Debian versions including a
command line interface version (CLI) based on Debian and also Debian Mint as
well as GNOME Desktop versions of Debian and Debian Mint.
I have two questions that I have not been able to figure out or find the
1) How can I enable email addresses in the text of the message so that
Alpine will open them up. For example if I mention user at internet.org in the
text is there I way that I can configure Alpine to make that address active
so it become a link?
2) I've tried to change the URL browser value to "links2 -g" but I
still open up links in links without graphics. I've added a ~.bash_aliases
entry to change the command links2 to 'links2 -g' which works but alpine
continues to use links.
I checked .pinerc and there is an entry at the end:
Is this correct? I've tried removing the " marks but it still fails to
display graphics. The command links2 -g works correctly on console for me.
Thanks for such a fabulous program.
