GDebi doesn't handle apturl

Bug Description

I'm trying to open apturls in Firefox (i.e. or apt://firefox) with gdebi-gtk, not with Ubuntu Software Center - but this doesn't work: GDebi appears, but it doesn't load a file. On the other hand I can install (already downloaded) deb-files without problem via GDebi. Is this feature disabled together with the (former) possibility to add PPAs via apturl? If so, why does USC distinguish between both and GDebi not?

Ubuntu 11.10, gdebi 0.8.1

gdebi doesn't have functionality of opening apt: links, you should install and use "apturl" package for that.

Changed in gdebi (Ubuntu):
status: New → Invalid
