Litecoin URIs

Litecoin URIs are formed with a Litecoin address and some optional parameters, such as amount and label.

Example: litecoin:LcUP7ZU3Xpk1BUR3qut3dTjC3aK5JoZMYx?amount=1&message=donation

You can configure your browser to launch your Litecoin client when you click a Litecoin URI.

Started with the previous URI, the Electrum client will open its send tab with pre-filled fields.

How to configure your browser

Firefox (version 3.5 and above)


To configure Chrome on Ubuntu 10.04 and maybe later versions, do this first on the command-line:
$ gconftool-2 -t string -s /desktop/gnome/url-handlers/litecoin/command "/path/to/electrum-ltc %s"
$ gconftool-2 -t bool -s /desktop/gnome/url-handlers/litecoin/needs_terminal false
$ gconftool-2 -t bool -s /desktop/gnome/url-handlers/litecoin/enabled true
This tells Gnome what to do with Litecoin URIs, and Chrome picks that up from Gnome.
