Description of problem:
I installed firefox form Fedora Extras and set it as default in
When i press help in a system-config-* tool it starts mozilla. I tried
to set epiphany as default but the still start mozilla.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. open system-config-<whateveryouwant>
2. press help
Actual Results: it ignores the preferred applications settings.
Expected Results: it should use the browser which is set as start in
Should be an easy fix. Please remind me early next week to deal with
its next week now (monday) ;)
Can you be more specific about which applications exhibit this
problem? I just tried system-config-network, and Help -> Contents
launched my Preferred Browser firefox.
Well, the Preferred Browser of the root user, since the tool is
running as root through the usermode helper thing.
yes it runs the preferred browser of the root user but it should
launch the preferred browser of the user which uses the tool trought
even if root has the same browser it can have different settings/theme
whatever wich is anoying.
Sorry, there is no clean way of doing this.
