How do I set default browser on kde 3.2 and suse 9.1?
For some reason, my email client (evolution) stopped to launch mozilla and started to launch Epiphany, to load web links. I guess some ctrl+alt+backspace did this, but I'm not sure.
Where can I tell suse to use mozilla as a default browser? I searched kde control center, evolution settings, couldn't find it anywhere.

I dont use evolution but have you tried looking for config files in your home directory? is an example of one /home/umpitysquat/.evloution/config.xmldb

you might find something from there .......I dont know .....but its probably in a config file somewhere

Hi deep! Thanks for the answer.
My home has three .gnome dirs and one evolution dir. I took a walk there, but nothing seems to be pointing to any default browser.
Isn't it strange that such a simple setup doens't show up easily in control center or such?

Hi deep! Thank you again!
That thread was a little outdated, the current gnome is 2.6. There is no more /.gnome/gnome file on my $home, but your post gave me the idea to search for the config in gnome's stuff, and I found it, finnaly!
You have to use this app, GConf, under System>More programs> Configuration Editor (this is kde launching a gnome app). Inside GConf there's a hierarchical tree, you should go to desktop > gnome>url-handlers>http, and there it is! Just edit the key.

Thank you!
