Bug Description

When setting the default web browser Chromium is incorrectly shown for some flavours of Ubuntu.

For Kubuntu:

When going to Settings -> Applications -> Default Applications -> Web Browser -> In the following application, the entry for Chromium (with application icon) is shown twice.

For Ubuntu MATE:

When going to Control Center -> Preferred Applications -> Web Browser, the application icon is missing for Chromium

For Xubuntu:

When going to Settings -> Preferred Applications -> Web Browser, the "missing icon" icon is shown for Chromium

Thanks for the report Paul.

I have yet to look into the situation on Kubuntu and MATE, but I can already confirm it on Xubuntu, and the cause appears to be that exo-helper ships its own desktop file for chromium (https://git.xfce.org/xfce/exo/tree/exo-helper/helpers/chromium.desktop.in.in).

Changed in chromium-browser (Ubuntu):
status: New → Confirmed
importance: Undecided → Medium
