[SOLVED] Urxvt- Enabling Links?

Can you enable links in urxvt so that when you click them, they open in firefox?

I'm running irssi in urxvt and would prefer this over using the openurl script (which isnt working too well)

Add the following to ~/.Xdefaults:

urxvt*perl-lib:            /usr/lib/urxvt/perl/
urxvt*perl-ext-common:        default,matcher
urxvt*urlLauncher:        /usr/bin/firefox
urxvt*matcher.button:        1
urxvt*matcher.pattern.1:   \\bwww\\.[\\w-]+\\.[\\w./?&@#-]*[\\w/-]

For the record, your pattern.1 isn't needed. The default pattern is much more thorough.

Also, I think the perl-lib setting may default to the path you have there

Ah ha! Thanks for the tip...at some point last year I was looking for the same solution and simply copied it from somewhere else.

Re: [SOLVED] Urxvt- Enabling Links?

Ah, it doesn't actually work. sad

I have the following chunk o' code in my .Xdefaults:

urxvt*perl-ext-common: default,matcher
urxvt*urlLauncher: /usr/bin/firefox3
urxvt*matcher.Button: 1

But nothing happens. sad A URL gets nicely underlined and such, but when I click it nothing happens...


EDIT: Yeah, so the problem was perl-ext-common: It had to be perl-ext. Now everything is nice.

One thing I still don't get is why 'urxvt.matcher.Button' doesn't work for me. No matter what I write (0,1,2) - I can only open a URL with middle click. Neither left (which is supposed to be one 1) nor right (I guess on 3) work. It always, no matter what I have written there, defaults to the middle mouse button.

Ideas?

This is still the top search result for this problem, so resurrecting for the benefit of others:

The name of the option urlLauncher has changed to url-launcher. See man urxvt, or this thread:

Please don't do that. The wiki should be updated if need be, dead threads should be left in peace.
