Description Randy Barlow 2017-11-17 18:15:12 UTC
Hello! I recently updated Qupzilla on my F27 system and after that my desktop started opening links in Firefox even though I had Qupzilla set at the default.

It took me a while to realize what happened, but it looks like the filename for the .desktop file changed:

qupzilla-2.1.2-4.fc27 provided /usr/share/applications/qupzilla.desktop
qupzilla-2.2.1-1.fc27 provides /usr/share/applications/org.qupzilla.QupZilla.desktop

I was able to use the following to workaround it:

$ xdg-settings set default-url-scheme-handler http org.qupzilla.QupZilla.desktop
$ xdg-settings set default-url-scheme-handler https org.qupzilla.QupZilla.desktop
$ xdg-settings set default-web-browser org.qupzilla.QupZilla.desktop

Since it is a backwards incompatible change, I recommend reverting it in F27 and perhaps leaving it the way it is in Rawhide if you want to rename it.

Comment 1 Rex Dieter 2017-11-17 18:18:26 UTC
Or... provide a backward compatible (but hidden) .desktop file

Comment 2 Kevin Kofler 2017-11-18 00:59:31 UTC
Upstream renamed the .desktop file, send any complaints there.

Comment 3 Kevin Kofler 2017-11-18 01:09:15 UTC
What's sure is that the name will change again with 2.3 which will rename the application to Falkon.

Comment 4 Randy Barlow 2017-11-19 17:54:53 UTC
It would be reasonable to provide a .desktop file that is backwards compatible in the spec file for stable Fedora releases, even if upstream changed it. This way we can provide a stable experience for Fedora users.
