I am running Debian/Testing with KDE and I mostly use firefox for web
browsing. Somehow (ok, really because I fiddled with the config) it has
become the default browser and I can't figure out how to change it back.
This is annoying because In KDE you can choose "run command" from the
start menu and enter "#commandname" to get a nicely formatted man page.
On my system only konqueror understands this but currently it tries to
start firefox which reports that it doesn't understand the man: protocol.
update-alternatives says this:
pixie:~# update-alternatives --display x-www-browser
x-www-browser - status is auto.
link currently points to /usr/bin/konqueror
/usr/bin/mozilla-firefox - priority 70
slave x-www-browser.1.gz: /usr/share/man/man1/mozilla-firefox.1.gz
/usr/bin/mozilla - priority 80
slave x-www-browser.1.gz: /usr/share/man/man1/mozilla.1.gz
/usr/bin/konqueror - priority 100
Current `best' version is /usr/bin/konqueror.
pixie:~# update-alternatives --list x-www-browser
pixie:/etc/alternatives# ls -l x-www-browser
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 18 Apr 27 11:09 x-www-browser ->
Does anyone know where/how to reset this?
Alternatively is there an easy way to just reset KDE to all have
everything back to the default?
Would it be unwise to delete or rename my .kde directory and have it
