CUPS Manage Printing (KDE 3.5) open with Firefox?


Is there a quick and easy way to get the CUPS - Manage Printing KDE module to launch Firefox instead of opening up in the Seamonkey browser?

When I launch the applet, it loads with http://localhost:631 in Seamonkey, but I want it to launch with Firefox instead.

I know this is probably very simple, but I'm overlooking something.

Applet ? Do you mean a 'Desktop Entry' ( Icon ) ?

'cups.desktop' , change this line
Exec=htmlview http://localhost:631/
to
Exec=firefox http://localhost:631/

Or change the command using 'kmenuedit'
> Menu > System > > 'right click' on the item
and choose "Edit ..."
... edit Command to : firefox http://localhost:631/
.....
