No Default Browser Entry for 'Manual' on Linux

Reported by: Iyeru Owned by:

Description

When Pidgin tries to acquire a URL location, it reports that the URL could not be retreived:

The 'Manual' browser command has been chosen, but no command has been set.

Linux usually comes loaded with Firefox, so you would think Pidgin would execute firefox.

"Linux usually comes loaded with Firefox" is just a blatantly false statement, also I'm pretty sure pidgin defaults to using 'mozilla' in a fresh install already.

Xubuntu Gutsy is where this error is happening, Firefox does not open, nor does any browser for that matter.

Your browser setting is clearly set to manual, if you set it to firefox it should work. Why it is set to manual I do not know as I believe the default is firefox.

Replying to deryni:

Aparrently, Pidgin had it set to manual by default.

  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed

The default browser as set up by the pidgin code is mozilla, if you are getting a different default when you don't have an existing prefs.xml file then either your version of pidgin is patched, or Ubuntu is shipping a default prefs.xml file with manual set as the default.
