My problem is that many programs call xdg-open to open websites but on my manjaro system (arch based) this is somehow bound to cups :) When such a call to xdg-open happens, the cpu-usage goes up a lot, without anything happens. I restart because the laptop gets hot very quickly.
~ $ xdg-settings get default-web-browser cups.desktop
When i want to change that, i get the following response
~ $ xdg-settings set default-web-browser firefox.desktop xdg-settings: $BROWSER is set and can't be changed with xdg-settings
I can go ahead and change the environment variable for browser and i'm fixed, BUT only for this one terminal. How could i make this change permanent/autostart?
