    Changing the default browser ?


    Help !
    I have a acer aspire one zg5 running on linux. I am looking to install the latest version of firefox but it seems very hard so I instead downloaded opera browser.
    I am lookingh to set this as the default i.e replace the default browser on the screen so when I click it Opera opens instead of the old firefox version.
    I am not the greatest on computers do any instructions would be greatly appriciated ?
    Thank you

    Preferred Apllications.

    Hi. With my Xubuntu distro I'll go in Settings>Preferred Applications, and from there set the defaults for my browsing and mailing tools.
    You can try this.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Right click on the icon and change the application it calls from Firefox to Opera.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
