View Full Version : default browser and mail client setup

9th May 2006, 05:49 PM

Using FC5 and KDE. When I click on a link in Thunderbird I get a xmessage stating:
ERROR: The browser [empty space] does not exist. Please reconfigure.

I guess I messed it up, when I tried to change the default mail client.

When I click on a mailto: link in firefox Evolution wants to start, but I prefer Thunderbird.

How and where should I setup the default web browser and mail client?

Look in the prefs (Prefered Applications).
Or use "gnome-default-applications-properties"

I think this is global (gnome & kde)

Look in the prefs (Prefered Applications).
Or use "gnome-default-applications-properties"I don't have gnome installed. Sorry, but where should I find Preferred Applications? Somewhere in Control Center?

edit2: I could set Thunderbird in its own preferences. Firefox on the other hand does not have that option, at least I couldn't find it.

edit3: Got the browser set in Control Center -> KDE Components -> Component Chooser
