Description Parker Coates 2009-09-07 04:57:33 UTC
Version:            (using Devel)
OS:                Linux
Installed from:    Compiled sources

KToolInvocation::invokeBrowser doesn't work unless Konqueror is installed, even if another browser has been set as the default in System Settings.

I recently did a minimum installation of a new OS. I installed kdebase/runtime and kdebase/workspace, but not all of kdebase/apps was installed. Firefox was installed and configured as KDE's default browser. I found that KDE applications (Konversation, Pastebin applet, about dialog) failed to open a browser window when links were clicked. On a whim I decided to install Konqueror to see if the problem was with Firefox, but as soon as Konqueror was installed, links started opening in Firefox.

Is this a bug? It certainly is what the user expects. Also, from a developer perspective, I was under the impression that kdebase/apps was a runtime requirement for apps built against kdelibs. I'm also not sure if kdecore is the correct product to file this against. Thanks.

Add support for konqueror haters :)
 (I mean, for people who choose another browser *and* don't even install kdebase-apps)
