I'm resending this because bouncing it with mutt didn't clear up
completely the to address. So here it is again with proper return
addresses. Sorry for the trouble.
When I wanna play a link over the internet through elinks, I've got my
mime types and mailcap so mplayer gets launched and that seems to work
fine but I can't get the keyboard to focus to mplayer. I'm sort of
locked out. I can't control elinks while mplayer is running and I can't
get into mplayer. When the file finishes, I get control of elinks back.
Otherwise, I have to go into another console to kill mplayer if I don't
wanna wait for the file to end. I think I'm missing an option some
place to get this to work right. Can anyone help me out? Thanks.
P.S. I should note that I'm using version 0.10.5 right and plan to put
.6 later this week. I'm doing all this in a text mode. Is there any
way to gain control of the media player program after elinks launches
The best solutions for the best price!
