I'm running 64-bit linux but sadly there's no flash support. I installed a 32-bit binary of firefox that can use the netscape-flash plugin and this saves my day.
So, what usually happens is that I surf around with Opera, find a youtube video I'd like to watch, copy link, open firefox-bin, paste link and hit enter et. voila. (I haven't managed to run netscape-flash in Opera either.)
Now, I've put a launcher in my panel executing firefox-bin. What would be great though was if firefox would launch automatically going to whatever address is in my selection buffer. I don't know if this is xfce4 related at all, I just had this idea and had to write
you can drag the link to the launcher it should open the url, but I don't know of any cli apps that can grab the clipboard
If you middle click the launcher, the content in the clipboard is used for the last argument, so if
is copied into the clipboard, and you middle-click the firefox launcher the Xfce website is openend. This only works in Xfce 4.3.xx.xx btw.
Thanks for your answers.
