The "DE" environment variable affects xdg-open settings/behavior

I think that perhaps Openbox "doesn't even count" as a DE to the related settings, so the result is that, for example, you can't open some stuff with the associated app from google...

I think it's the former as other fonts with two "nested subtypes/variants" work (such as liberation). The GUI settings...
