Hi Thierry,

org-annotation-helper.el is abandoned since quite a while. It is part
(and basis) of org-protocol.el and not delivered with Org-mode anymore.

The way to install it is very similar to the way org-annotation-helper
was installed and is described here:


The install works that way for me. If you use the Gnome desktop and have
firefox-gnome-integration (not sure if name is correct for all distros)
installed, you should install new protocol handlers using gconf-editor.

Please report any problems you encounter.

Best wishes
