Question Opening a URL from the command-line

Clearly, there exists a mechanism to directly open a URL in the Kindle's browser, as evidenced by the Google/Wikipedia search functionality. Has anyone figured out how to do this from the command-line? I'd like to hotkey my many bookmarks with Launchpad for easier access.

Specifically, I'm looking for Kindle 3 info.

Thanks, but the Kindle doesn't include xdg-open. Anyone else?

There were commands to open web pages using linux commands, in some of yifanlu's launcher menu options. Look there...

Ahh... I see. On the K5, the launcher menu uses lipc commands like this:

lipc-set-prop com.lab126.appmgrd start app://com.lab126.gmail/

It looks like lipc only launches commands defined in a config file. You would need to put URLs you want into whatever file lipc is looking in, and then you could launch them...

Not possible on the Kindle 3, then? On my end, appmgrd doesn't exist.

Nothing is "not possible". It is just a matter of figuring out HOW to do it.

The device is run by a general purpose computer system.
"Not Possible" is undefined in such cases.

Either you or someone else will just have to learn how to do it and post the directions.
