Linux – KDE: how to detect default browser


How does one detect/get the default browser on KDE? I know that on Gnome one can use "gconftool-2 -g /desktop/gnome/url-handlers/http/command" but what about KDE?

  • There is a python script called webbrowser available which is a general purpose browser interface. It includes a 'get' function which returns a controller to the default browser, which I think you could convert into a test appropriate for whatever it is you're trying to do.
