Thanks for this. I ran 'locate Galeon' and found a few Galeon.desktop files:
I updated the Exec line for those in my home directory:
$ cat .kde/share/applnk/Debian/Galeon.desktop
and restarted X (to ensure that KDEinit was dead) but no dice.

I did create the association by choosing Galeon from the menu that pops up:
I just tried typing /usr/bin/galeon %u in to the 'enter the name' field and
moving that entry to the top of the list, and that now successfully launches
Galeon with the URL, but other than the name change I can't see any real
difference between the two files, so I don't understand why this one works
when the other doesn't, so I'm not sure what to ask the Galeon maintainer to
fix - can you advise?
$ cat .kde/share/applnk/galeon\ %u.desktop
Also, is there something I should be using to edit these files, other that
Vi? Or something I should run to say 'the files have been updated'?
