On Kubuntu (12.04) I have three web browsers: Firefox, Chromium and rekonq. rekonq was default by default, and I asked both Firefox and Chromium to be default web browser (in this order).
- Links still open in rekonq.
- sensible-browser opens Firefox
- xdg-open http://example.com opens Chromium.
Closing session and logging in again made chromium open links, however still firefox is opened by sensible-browser.
Why is that and how to make one of these browsers really default? Preferably without root access (which seem to be required by update-alternatives).
