[sharp-discuss] FW: AutoSharp via ccp4i: borwser page won't open automatically

Hi Clemens,

Thanks for your prompt reply. In ccp4-6.5/share/ccp4i/etc/unix/configure.def
I have a line:

HYPERTEXT_VIEWER          _text                     firefox

Is that what you mean? It opens fine from within ccp4i (when I ask for example for doc files). Or should there be another place for this definition to look for?

It tries to open a browser by using the "Hypertext Viewer" configured
in CCP4i:

  System Administration -> Configure Interface

Please check what this is set to and if that command does work/exist
on your system.

There could be other issues, especially if you run CCP4i remotely via
a ssh session or such.

Good - thanks. Please make sure to check


for up-to-date information regarding CCP4 6.5 and SHARP/autoSHARP.
