Changing default Web browser in Red Hat Linux 8.0

When you click on the Web Browser icon in Red Hat Linux 8.0, you are executing the htmlview script. By default, this script will execute Mozilla even if you have Galeon and Konqueror installed. Personally, I like to use Galeon as my default Web browser.

To make Galeon the default Web browser:
vi ~/.htmlviewrc

Add:
X11BROWSER=/usr/bin/galeon



To make Konqueror the default Web browser:
vi ~/.htmlviewrc

Add:
X11BROWSER=/usr/bin/konqueror
