Subject:   How to set default browser without DE
Message-ID:  <>

Hi all,

I'm running the 'cwm' window manager without a desktop environment. 
Firefox acts as my default browser; however, I'd like to switch to 

I've searched DuckDuckGo and Google high and low, and I can't seem to 
figure out how I can set the default browser since I'm not using a desktop 

The settings page in Chromium reports that it "cannot determine or set the 
default browser."

I hope the answer is not painfully obvious, but I appreciate any
