Another suggestion, probably a bigger task: Look for common native
applications and write entries for them into the registry. For example, I
manually added an entry for KMail in \\Machine\\software\\clients and now I
can select Kmail as the default Mail application in the internet options
control panel(Which is created when Internet Explorer is installed). My
registry entries look like this:
With Z: mapped to /
I selected KMail as the default Mail application, and when I open an Mail
Address in MSIE kmail pops up. The same happens when I enter a maito: address
in Task Manager->New task.
