#946 closed defect (fixed)

doc/index.html not redirecting to doc/en/index.html

Reported by: camerons Owned by: camerons

Component: OSGeoLive Keywords: 6.0

This means that http://localhost comes up with a blank page (with just headings), when we want to land on our main page (in localhost/en/index.html)

This seems to be due to some fancy code that Frank Gasdorf has introduced, which I think is supposed to redirect to the correct language, based upon browser defaults, but for some reason doesn't seem to be working with my Firefox browser.

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

I've fixed this issue by reverting back to an older version of doc/index.html (version 5943) which just redirects to en/index.html without considering browser language.

Frank might want to try debugging and then reintroduce his feature.

I've added some (deactivated) code which might help in the long struggle to get firefox to respect the desired homepage.


? may only apply to new user accounts created after the change ?

along with that there are some (also deactivated) changes you can make to make the 12.04 Unity desktop much less annoying (avoid the maximization if the window brushes the top menu bar, be usable on dual-headed setups, shrink tablet buttons, etc.). maybe it saves someone some level of grief.

enjoy, Hamish

please add the ML email address to the CC field if you take ownership of a bug. otherwise the automated reporting fails.

see ticket for details on yet another way to set the firefox homepage (this one's unity override of the gnome override of the ubuntu override of the mozilla override... power struggles for control of the eyeballs), and the arcane gconf/dconf commands to make the Unity desktop much less annoying.

pining for simple text files in /etc, Hamish
