[SOLVED] How to integrate latest google-chrome as a preferred application with MLED-14.1?
The problem in 1 sentence: due to numerous random crashes I experienced lately, I uninstalled mozilla-firefox, installed google-chrome 
(built via fakeroot using ruari's latest-chrome script), then edited /usr/share/applications/exo-web-browser.desktop accordingly 
, but XFCE's "Preferred Applications" dialog doesn't show google-chrome as an alternative web browser 
33.0.1750.152 (Official Build 256984)

only "Links Text Browser" and "Lynx Text Browser" appear in the drop-down menu for "Web Browser". Previously I tried alienbob's chromium build that integrated just fine with MLED-14.1 at that point, but due to problems with the flash-player plugin(s) I decided to go with the latest google-chrome (which works better in that respect IMHO). I know that I can choose google-chrome-stable in "Other...", but I need to know what am I missing to make things JustWork(tm)
With the help of a thread at the Ubuntu Forums
I managed to resolve the issue: 1) I edited the google-chrome.desktop file and removed the superfluous sections (making the file more similar to exo-web-browser.desktop), 2) I set Google Chrome to be my default browser (via the button in Settings). Now there is a corresponding "Google Chrome" entry in the "Preferred Applications" settings dialog.
