I want to apologize to all org-annotation-helper users out there
(including Carsten) for dropping the ball for the last few months.


Here is the latest version of it, with improved documentation and 
a small bug fix b David Moffat.

http://turingmachine.org/~dmg/temp/org-annot-0.4.tar.gz

----------------------------------------------------------------------
* Welcome to org-annotation-helper

This package will allow you to invoke remember from your Web browser
and end within emacs with an org link to the current URL, including
its title, and the currently highlighted text.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

enjoy.

Hi Daniel, thanks.

I installed the new version in the contrib directory.

An org version of the docs can go up in Worg in the directory
org-contrib, with a link to it in org-contrib/index.el

Maybe the faq can go up on Worg as well, same directory?

Daniel:

The package you had available on your site was just the ticket for
installing org-annotation-helper.  It solved some problems.  It worked out
of the box.

I am unable to get a copy on the work site due to an absurd firewall, so I
tried to install it from the copy in the contrib directory.  It failed
miserably.  I'll trouble shoot.  The script is ok.  The package you put
together with the FAQ has been essential for me to get org-annotation-helper
working, more than once.

I wonder if this can be provided in contrib as the package, not just the
elisp file.  I am sure others will also be happier with the result.

Thank you again,

Alan

I have installed this new version three times.  Using your faq.html was more
straightforward.  When I tried it by hand, I failed.  I have taken the
liberty to edit a copy of org-annotation-helper.el in my git repository of
org-mode.  I have tried to clarify the explanation of how to get this tool
running.  When I figure out how to make a patch, I will attempt that.
Meanwhile, the explanation for Firefox 3 can use some clarifcation, as
follows:

;; Step 3: Browser set-up - add the protocol handlers for the
;;                          "remember://" and "annotation://" URIs.
;;
;;  [Firefox]
;;
;;  To add a protocol handler (eg: remember://) in Firefox, take the
;;  following steps:
;;
;;  * For Firefox 2 and 3, type "about:config" in the location bar.
;;
;;    [What happens in Firefox 2?]
;;
;;  * In firefox 3, you will will receive a warning: you will have to
;;    click on "I'll be careful, I promise!"  A screen will appear with a
;;    list of
;;
;;    Right click on the screen anywhere to get the pop-up menu.
;;    Select New --> String.

;;    A window will appear titled "New String Value".
;;    You are asked to "Enter the preference name."
;;    In the field enter "network.protocol-handler.app.remember".
;;    The window appears again, with a title "Enter String Value."
;;    A text message says "network.protocol-handler.app.remember" with a
;;    blue diamond to the left with a "?" (question mark).
;;    Enter as the value, the name of the shell script.  In GNU/Linux is
;;    unnecessary to include the path.
;;
;;  * Lather, rinse, repeat for the annotation protocol. The string to
;;    add is, in this case, "network.protocol-handler.app.annotation",
;;    The value will be the same  script name as above,
"org-annotation-helper".
;;
;;      [I am uncertain what the next means.  Does this mean you HAVE TO
;;       use a file selection protocol to navigate to the script?  Does it
;;       mean that you can OPTIONALLY edit the about:config list, or that
this is
;;       the appropriate next action?]
;;
;;   | In Firefox 3, when you first click on the button associated with
;;   | the bookmarklet, you should get a pop-up asking if you'd like to
;;   | associate the bookmarklet with a particular file. Use the
;;   | file-select process to navigate to the org-annotation-helper
;;   | script and select it.  You can still edit the about:config
;;   | list directly as in Firefox 2.
;;
;;  * the value should be the name of the file containing the shell
;;    script, e.g. in Step 1, we called it "org-annotation-helper".
;;    At least under Linux this does not need to be the full path to
;;    the script.
;;
;;
;;  You should have two new entries like this:
;;
;;   network.protocol-handler.app.annotation user set string <path>
;;   network.protocol-handler.app.remember   user set string <path>
;;
;;   where <path> is the location where org-annotation-helper is
;;   for example, in my case it is /home/dmg/bin/org-annotation-helper

;;  See http://kb.mozillazine.org/Register_protocol for more details.
;;

I don't know the procedure for Firefox 2, but perhaps they should be clearly
differentiated, or not at all.  I, at least, need the extra clarification,
as I stumbled over the instructions every time I have installed
org-annotation-helper, version 0.3 and version 0.4.

The package you provided as an attachment to the list is far easier to
install, and less problematical.  I suggest, once again, that in contrib,
this entire package would best be included under packages.


Thank you for this package.  It works.

Alan

Hi Alan,

if you find making a patch hard, just send me a modified version.

Even better, write a better version of

http://orgmode.org/worg/org-contrib/org-annotation-helper.php

Do you know how to use worg in order to modify this file?

- Carsten
