Here is how you can launch defrag and connect to the server when you click on a link on mdd's server list

Chrome

Use xdg-open as the default protocol handler for "defrag://"

  1. navigate to where your desktop entries are (usually ~/.local/share/applications)
  2. add the following line to your mimeapps.list

    x-scheme-handler/defrag=defrag.desktop

3.create defrag.desktop in that same directory and add this to it: (modify accordingly)

[Desktop Entry]
Encoding=UTF-8
Type=Application
Exec=YOUR-FULL-PATH-TO/ioquake3/iodfengine.x86_64 +connect $(echo '%u' | perl -pe "s/defrag:..//")
Name=defrag
Comment=ohboyilovedefrag

After that you can click the links and they will work as expected
