kde preferences setting in gnome?
 
Hi,

I've just switched from F7 to F11 and in general things went well. But I use
kmail as my pop client and when clicking on a URL in a mail I always get
Konquerer. I've gone into System | Preferences | Preferred Applications and
Firefox (my fave) is selected, but I conjecture I need to go elsewhere to
change it as well. I don't see anywhere in kmail to change this behaviour.

Thoughts?

Dave

Thinking...

I use KDE and I always find that it is best to set up gnome preferences in gnome,
so that when I run the programs in KDE, they will work correctly.

I gather you are using Gnome, but want to use some KDE programs. Likely, you would
do best to go into KDE and set it up correctly there, then go back into Gnome and
hopefully all will work okay. Maybe you could just run systemsettings from within
gnome, too?

I am not sure where you would make the setting that you want, but the only thing I
can think of is:

KDE system settings> general tab> default applications> web browser. There, the
default is "application based on contents of the URL". Try changing this to the
second option and specify firefox. You might need some sort of %s or %u or
something like that thing after, but I don't understand those or how you figure out
which one. Nevertheless, this should do the trick.

Yes, System Settings can be fired up under any X11 environment, just execute
the "systemsettings" command.
