Using gmail as KDE’s default mail client

August 16th, 2006

I found this script which, when set as your default mail client, opens up a gmail compose window from KDE apps instead of KMail.

I had a couple of problems with the automatic browser detection of the script, though, so I simply set the BROWSER variable to “firefox” instead of the command in the script.

To use, save the script in a file, make it executable, then point to the script from Control Center - KDE Components - Component Chooser - Email client.
