Description

Hi,

Currently in 'configure.ac' the testing for 'xdg_open' will error i.e.

AC_PATH_PROG(xdgopen, xdg-open)
    if test -z "$xdgopen"; then
      AC_MSG_ERROR([xdg-open not found. This program is the preferred way to launch the default browser. Please install the xdg-utils.])
    fi 

As a runtime dependency, could we not have it as 'AC_MSG_WARN' rather than the 'AC_MSG_ERROR' and leave distro packagers like myself to then only need to add it as such?

Regards

Phil
