Some of you want to have the irc-client started by clicking on an irc://-link in Firefox/Epiphany. For this we must create a script:

~/.xchat2/xchat4browser
Code[In neuem Fenster öffnen]
#!/bin/bash
xchat -e --url=$@


Then make it executable:

Code[In neuem Fenster öffnen]
# chmod +x ~/.xchat2/xchat4browser


Start up Firefox/Epiphany and enter into the url-line about:config.

Mouse-right-click and choose New > Boolean.

Firefox/Epiphany > New boolean value: network.protocol-handler.external.irc
Firefox > Value: true
Epiphany > double-click on network.protocol-handler.external.irc to set it to true

Now we have to do a string:

Firefox/Epiphany > Mouse-right-click and choose New > String.
Firefox/Epiphany > New String Value: network.protocol-handler.app.irc
Firefox/Epiphany > Value: ~/.xchat2/xchat4browser

Now test it by entering irc://irc.freenode.net/paldo into your url-line of Firefox/Epiphany.
