Just so I'm clearer - I'm just talking about a simple solution, not building any new application. We could use a .desktop file similar to this [Desktop Entry] Encoding=UTF-8 Name=BrowserVM Exec=qvm-open-in-vm APPVMNAME %u Terminal=false X-MultipleArgs=false Type=Application Categories=Network;WebBrowser; MimeType=x-scheme-handler/unknown as documented in https://www.qubes-os.org/doc/tips-and-tricks/#opening-links-in-your-preferred-appvm I've gotten this done so far [Desktop Entry] Encoding=UTF-8 Name=Open Screenshot in VM Exec=zenity --entry --text="Enter destination domain name:" | qvm-open-in-vm %u Terminal=false X-MultipleArgs=false Type=Application Categories=Network;WebBrowser; MimeType=x-scheme-handler/unknown -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "qubes-users" group.
