Bug Description

Binary package hint: apport

I've change the default browser in KDE settings, but apport is not using it and insist on loading rekonq.

Philip Muškovac (yofel) wrote :

Please run the following commands and tell us what they do (the first should give a number, the second open a launchpad in your preferred browser)

pgrep -x -u $UID ksmserver
kfmclient openURL

please also state the version of the apport package and which kubuntu release you are using.

Changed in apport (Ubuntu):
status: New → Incomplete

Here are the result of the commands on this install of Kubuntu 11.4.

$ apport-cli -v

$ pgrep -x -u $UID ksmserver

$ kfmclient openURL
The program 'kfmclient' is currently not installed. You can install it by typing:
sudo apt-get install konqueror

That would explain it since we don't ship konqueror by default anymore.

This bug was fixed in the package apport - 1.20.1-0ubuntu3

apport (1.20.1-0ubuntu3) natty; urgency=low

  * Merge from trunk:
    - Use kde-open instead of kfmclient to open URLs under KDE. Thanks Philip

  * etc/default/apport: Disable by default for the final release.
