Does anyone know how to set a default browser in Mandrake 8.2 using KDE. I would like Konquorer to be the default. When I used Evolution to get mail and someone sends me a hyperlink, it opens up in Mozilla. I like Mozilla but would still like to know how to change this.
1.start control center
2.expand file browsing
3.clik on file associations
4. on the right side of tha pane u see a set of file types
5. expand text
6. choose html
7. on the right, in the "Application preference order" choose your browser,move konqueror to the top , if it is not listed clik add to be displayed in the list re-order it,
in all probabilites Konqueror is present by deafult, apply the changes
I did exactly as you said. Konqueror was already at the top of the list so I hit apply anyway (just to make sure). I went back to Evolution and clicked on an email hyperlink but it still opened up Mozilla. I think it must be one of the settings in Evolution, but for the life of me I can't find it. I've poked around in the help files for Evolution but I can't find anything there either. I'm convinced that it is something really simple. I'm famous for that. If it is right in front of me, I won't see it. If you make it hard, I can usually figure it out.
If there is something in Konqueror to set it as default, I sure can't find it. I have also looked for a setting in Evolution but no luck. I will try to edit the file as you said and I'll see if that works. I'll let you know. Thanks a lot.
When I did that, it opened up the Google site in Konquorer, not Mozilla.
If I need to edit the file we were talking about earlier, could you give me some instructions on how to do that. I thought I could do it on my own, but I'm getting nowhere. I've got my nose in one of my books now, trying to figure it out. I'm so new to Linux that all of this is a bit overwhelming. I have a long way to go with learning the command line and editing files.
Well, I've been clicking around and trying different things for over an hour now. I'm getting nothing here. I will have to wait until you guys come up with something. I tried the Evolution web site again, but I can't find anything.
