Hi folks,

I am looking for the configuration or the file, where kde (or an application)

The problem is, that I want open all links out of applications with the same

For example, a link in mediathekview is opened with opera, a link in kmail2 is
opened with iceweasel. Sometimes chromium also is started.

I set update-alternatives --config x-www-browser to iceweasel, but that did not

Is there a way to set a browser by default, when the application has no
configuration option for a browser, so that it will use a set default browser?

Is there a (text)-configuration file, where the browsers are set?

Thanks for the help!

Best regards


Thanks for asking. It prompted me to try to fix the problem. A little searching gave me this solution:

as root enter: update-alternatives --config x-www-browser

then select the browser you want.

Apparently the problem isn't with KDE but rather with running applications that don't respect KDE's settings.
