Hello,

I would like to change Porteus (64-bit) default browser from Firefox to Opera.
I couldn't find out how to do this.
How can I do this?

hi att,

do you want to set opera as default browser or replace 006-firefox.xzm module with opera module?

if you are interested in first option then:
- activate opera-xx-yy.xzm
- go to "System Settings -> Default Applications -> Web Browser" and choose Opera as default browser

if you are interested in second option then:
- deactivate and remove 006-firefox.xzm
- activate opera-xx-yy.xzm
- if you want to use flash with opera then download and activate 'seamonkey-solibs' (shared libraries needed by flash) by PPM
- go to "System Settings -> Default Applications -> Web Browser" as choose Opera as default browser
- press right mouse click on 'click launch' plasmoid from the taskbar and remove firefox/add opera

should be ok :)
