clicking on links in Terminal results in wrong browser being used
Last modified: 2015-09-25 03:58:19 EDT
Description of problem:
my preferred browser is set to firefox. If i click on a link in terminal it opens in midori
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Downgrading to xfce4-session-4.12.1-4.fc23.x86_64 causes it to work as expected?
yes it does
ok. I dug around some more on this today.
There's two things here:
1. We need to change the xfce-mimeapps.list to use exo-web-browser.desktop instead of hard coding midori. This would allow us to call whatever preferred browser is set in exo-preferred-applications.
2. Even after doing the above, I had to move aside an old ~/.config/mimeapps.list because it had some x-scheme-handler/http*= that pointed to the wrong browser.
I'm going to push a xfce4-session update that does point 1 above.
