grass-pkg: typo in iexplorer path

Description

Hi,

in the GRASS 6.4.0-2 package there's a typo in /c/OSGeo4W/etc/ini/grass.bat.

set GRASS_HTML_BROWSER= has "\Internet Exporer\" instead of "\Internet Explorer\" (missing "l"). This makes it so none of the help pages load.

tested & fails on multiple systems.

AFAICS that file (or the script to build that file) is not in any of the usual SVN places.. where dost it come from?

also that batch file must do:

set GRASS_PYTHON=%OSGEO4W_ROOT%\bin\python.exe

the only reason we got away with that not being set before was because it was mostly hardcoded in the code, but now that's fixed upstream so the next 6.4svn snapshot or RC will break without it.

ps- in case you have any ideas, "nviz" doesn't load from the wxGUI, but does from the tcltk GUI.

  • from the wxGUI DOS box if I type "nviz" I get %errorlevel% of 1 and it instantly returns to the dos prompt. If I do "nviz -q" it starts (adding a command line param skips the startup options menu and loads the app directly). Apparently it won't launch GUI windows from the DOS prompt. 'g.gui wxpython' similarly fails to do anything.
  • from the wxGUI File menu "NVIZ (tcl/tk)" loads the startup options menu (select "quickstart" button in options tab), but when you hit Run it instantly returns. (also seen in the non-osgeo4w windows installer)

ok, and that GRASS_HTML_BROWSER string should also have a ".exe" at the end of it.

Set firefox as a default, but choosing help for individual commands from the gis manager, results in an Firefox Alert "c is not a registered protocol" and a black firefox window after I press OK on the alert panel.

Replying to Venkat:

I get the same for gis.m tcl/tk module Help buttons.

('Help->Grass help' and startup screen help works though, and everything in the wxPython GUI).

It ws sending+misreading

"C:/OSGeo4W/apps/grass/..."

when it should be like

"file:///C:/OSGeo4W/apps/grass/..."

so "C:" is being read as the URL protocol (like http:// or ftp://)

fixed in SVN rev37537,8. http://trac.osgeo.org/grass/changeset/37537
