|Subject||[greenstone-devel] Windows -compatible distribution that doesn't require playing withhosts file or using 127.0.0.1?|
I've search the archives and googled this issue. I know it is
relatively common, but am writing to this list in hopes that somebody
knows an elegant solution.
We are about to burn a Master CD for publication with a book that uses
Greenstone to provide search functionality. The intended audience is
medievalists with a computer, i.e. varying technical competence from 0.1
We have two problems.
1) The first is with the use of IE as the default browser (the project
is very standards based and IE doesn't work as well as other browsers;
since we recommend against it in our system requirements, we don't want
Greenstone to load it as the standard browser. Is there a way of setting
up the install so that the local computer browser is the default choice?
Since there is a "default" choice in the File menu that appears on the
startup screen, it seems to me there must be a way of setting it so that
option is checked by default. We just can't figure out how to do it.
2) The second issue has to do with problems with how Greenstone installs
Does anybody know a more elegant solution to this issue? I realise it is
