Re: 2.4: Unable to set default browser

It's not only the launcher. Also when i click on a link in evolution, i get epiphany or when i click on a link that i dropped on the desktop.

I now solved it through:

# cd /usr/X11R6/bin; mv epiphany epiphany.old; ln -s galeon epiphany

It's a bad hack, but now it works!

Note that the "Web Browser" launcher that comes with GNOME points directly to Epiphany instead of the default browser.

Did you try Applications > Desktop Preferences > Advanced > Preferred
Applications ?

Yes, but still epiphany pops up, no matter if i select "Select a web browser" or "cutstom web browser" (See attached gif).
