10.3: Use Jaguar's Internet preference pane in Panther
Authored by: donvy on Nov 11, '03 12:35:16PM

I tried this but placed it instead in my ~/Library/PreferencePanes/ instead, so any future system updates won't overwrite it, and I get to keep it when I backup my user directory. And yes, it works.

10.3: Use Jaguar's Internet preference pane in Panther
Authored by: stevec on Nov 11, '03 03:12:47PM

Interesting.

I tried the new way to add preference panes: dropping it on the open system preferences panel and it returned an error to the effect that it couldn't be added because you cant replace the one already named Internet Preferences.

Double checking the System Preferences panel showed none named "Internet Preferences." Obviously Apple doesn't want you putting it there. Curious But if you just make a folder Called PreferencePanes in ~/Library and drop it there it works fine.

10.3: Internet.prefPane
Authored by: baltwo on Nov 11, '03 05:13:54PM

On my Panther installation, there's an Internet.prefPane in /System/Library/PrefPanes, but it's an alias to the Mac.prefPane. Apparently, the system looks for the Internet.prefPane and launches the Mac.prefPane when it finds the alias. I installed Jaguar's Internet.prefPane 1.21 into ~/Library/PreferencePanes and the system ignores the alias and uses the Jag one. This, along with More Internet, provides all the control you need to set the default mail/browser applications and protocol helpers. Note, if you have multiple user accounts and want all of them to have this capability, you should add these to each user's ~/Library/PreferencePanes directory.

10.3: Internet.prefPane
Authored by: olwylee on Nov 11, '03 11:02:56PM
if you want this to work flawlessly, use Diablotin and disable the mac.prefpane. The jag internet.prefpane gives you all the idisk and .mac options as well as puts the settings for default browser and mail where it should be. Apple should have given the idea of using safari and mail for setting these options more thought. Personally i use Gyazmail and Camino as my defaults.
