Upon install originally discord would open files with the associated default program (e.g. image viewer for images (this behavior is imo even better than on windows lol) and default browser (Chromium) for links)
Then I installed firefox, it’s not set as default for anything in the system settings (on kde) but now discord just wants to open everything with it.
@j8a idk lightcord looks a bit shady to me. The sheer amount of shit it’s devs are getting is unbelievable, and I don’t think they’re gonna keep the project going for very long, or maybe they’ll just do what all the haters are saying about it and turn itinto a virus or something.
Doesn’t look like a stable project to me; nevermind that it’s like what version 0.1 and has only been in development for 1 year?
It does strike me as odd though how ridiculously much the project gets shit on… But I don’t feel like touching this with a 10 foot pole right now. Seems like a recipe for things going wrong anyways.
Also tried deleting user config files with: rm -rf ~/.config/discord
Did not affect the issue.
Update: I managed to solve the issue of it always opening things in the wrong browser, simply went to kde’s default applications menu, set firefox as default, then set chromium as default again, it now opens everything in the correct browser…
But it hasn’t gone back to it’s behavior of opening images and such in my image viewer
