Changing the default mail app in dolphin?

06/05/2010 - 13:37 von Josef Moellers | Report spam
Hi,

I'm using dolphin 0.9.2 on kde 3.5.10 on kubuntu 8.04LTS (switch to
10.04LTS is started, but I have little time to wrap things up).

In KDE's System Settings' "Default Applications" I have changed the
Email Client from "Use KMail as preferredemail client" to a "different
email client": "/usr/bin/thunderbird %u".
However, in dolphin when I right-click on a file and select "Actions" ->
"Mail as Attachment ...", dolphin insists on using kmail rather than
thunderburd.
How can I change that?

TIA,

Josef

Those right-click thingies are called services, my guess is that the
.desktop-file defining this services has kmail hardcoded. I'm not entirely
sure where those files are located though, you can find them via

locate -i servicemenu (that should give you the directory)

or, if you don't have slocate, via

find /usr/share/ | grep -i servicemenu
