Set Default Browser

Posted by Boy Sandy Gladies Arriezona on April 12, 2016

For a few month after I did a fresh install of Archlinux, I found that when I try to click a link inside any application, it will call google chrome. So, I decide to fix it today. It actually easy. We can set our default browser with xdg-mime which is owned by xdg-utils.

Requirement

  • xdg-utils

What I did

We can set out default browser with these commands:

$ xdg-mime default firefox.desktop x-scheme-handler/http

And for https:

$ xdg-mime default firefox.desktop x-scheme-handler/https
