When I click on the link just echoed, it is opened in firefox.

Earlier such links from terminal were opened in chrome.

But then I made firefox as my default browser. Then on wards these links are opened in firefox.

But now I want to open links in chrome. I had made chrome as default browser.

Still these links are opened in firefox. How to solve this?

I am using elementary 14.04.

I tried to recreate this in ubuntu. But there it is working fine. When I changed to chrome as default browser, links from terminal are opened in chrome.

What I have tried

I uninstalled firefox. Now the links are opening in chrome.

Then I again installed firefox. Now the links are again opening in firefox

My Desktop Environment is panthaeon Terminal is panthaeon-terminal

The links from terminal are opened in your default browser. If you want to open it in chrome, make chrome your default browser...

  • chrome is my default browser. I had clearly specified in the question
