Description fred-m 2002-10-11 12:56:53 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.5 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20020809 Description of problem: Htmlview is the default handler for html in Gnome, and its icon figures prominently on the Gnome toolbar, so most users will probably use this icon. However, htmlview does not consider the Gnome default (set in Extras -> Preferences -> Preferred applications). Since the default for both htmlview and Gnome is Mozilla, htmlview works with Gnome out of the box. But, if I change the Gnome default (to, say, Galeon), and then click the htmlview icon in Gnome, I still get Mozilla. Setting my ~/.htmlviewrc file to export X11BROWSER=/usr/bin/galeon solves the problem. I think that the simplest way to solve this problem for now is to have the "Preferred applications" application write the browser chosen to the ~/.htmlviewrc file. (Not sure if it will work on KDE). (Think of it, this is two bugs. Changing the default browser in the "Preferred applications" should change also the html and other setups in Preferences -> File Types and Programs also.) Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Get a freshly updated, or newly installed, Red Hat 8.0 (BTW, mine was upgraded from 7.3) 2. Change the Extras -> Preferences -> Preferred applications Web browser to Galeon 3. Click the htmlview icon on the Gnome toolbar Actual Results: Mozilla, not Galeon, will be started Expected Results: Galeon is started Additional info: I'm registering it as a bug, not RFE, since it is very confusing for the end-user. Whether it should be classified as an htmlview bug depends on the solution that you choose.

i would also at the very least suggest the Preferred applications program create a correct ~/.htmlviewrc
Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2002-12-06 13:54:35 UTC
Fixed package is 2.0.0-8, which will shortly appear in rawhide.
