default web-link browser for kde programs

Hello. I am running AnyMeal, which is a KDE program. There's a link in the set-up for FAQs, but when I try to open it I am told "Could not launch the browser: Could not find kfmclient". I checked /etc/alternatives, and the x-www-browser is set to be iceweasel (Debian's firefox), which is what I use. I do not have Konqueror installed. I use Fluxbox, however, I also run some Gnome and KDE programs.

I checked if there is a package I may need, but came up empty:
mark@debian:~$ locate kfmclient
mark@debian:~$ apt-cache search kfmclient
Does anyone know how I can set it up so that the "kfmclient" can be recognised as iceweasel?

# Open kcontrol (KDE configuration center), also known as systemsettings in KDE4.
# Go to "Components -> Components chooser -> Web browser".
# Check "The following browser", and type in "iceweasel"

Thanks for the response. I'd rather not install kcontrol, however. Is there another way to set it up without using kcontrol? A way without having to resort to a gui?
