Description Sebastian Vahl 2007-05-07 13:34:04 UTC
Description of problem: 
htmlview only checks if firefox exists. Is this is not the case an error would 
be shown: "ERROR: The browser firefox does not exist.  Please reconfigure."
If /usr/bin/gnome-default-applications-properties doesn't exist that would be 

On KDE LiveCD we don't have gnome-default-applications-properties. So after a 
installation to hard disk the user would not know how to reconfigure this. The 
best way here would be to fallback to konqueror in a KDE session. Or 
read "BrowserApplication" from ~/.kde/share/config/kdeglobals.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install KDE LiveCD or remove firefox and 
2. Login into KDE
3. Launch htmlview
Actual results: Error Message

Expected results: konqueror would be startet

Additional info: I've misread #230023. So I've opened a single bug for this.

Comment 1 Warren Togami 2007-05-07 15:37:08 UTC
Please see if this makes it behave as expected in the LiveCD.

Comment 2 Sebastian Vahl 2007-05-08 08:57:47 UTC
Konqueror would be startet now, but only in filebrowser mode. In
/usr/share/applications/kde/konqbrowser.desktop it says "kfmclient openProfile
webbrowsing". Maybe this one is better (and I've should have written that in my
first post).

Comment 3 Warren Togami 2007-05-09 18:07:52 UTC
Please test this in two ways:
1) With GNOME installed, use Preferred Applications chooser and pick Konqueror,
then run htmlview with no parameters.
2) Same thing a #1, but run htmlview with a URL parameter.  Something like
3) Run htmlview in a KDE-only environment, like KDE Live CD.

Comment 4 Sebastian Vahl 2007-05-09 18:26:30 UTC
to 1) konqueror would be started with /usr/share/doc/HTML/index.html
to 2) konqueror is loading the given url

On LiveCD:
1) some as above
2) same as above

So it seems to work properly.

waiting for the buildsystem to come back
