I want to switch from microb to an other browser (at the moment fennec is my favourite).

This means the other browser (for me: fennec) should open if I select a link in modest or mauku or the feed reader or wherever.

Is there any possibility to do this for all applications in a central place?

Alas, no. Maemo does not have a central system for this so many apps just hardcode the usage of the default browser to open a link.

One way to go about this problem is by simply asking one of the many Nokia developers who are within the community and are actively discussing within the community - how we could eventually do it

You can simply do it by changing what's inside the osso_rpc_async* or osso_rpc_run* functions of your favourite application. This assumes, however, that the program in question is open-source and the browser you wish to change to does not have broken DBUS methods.

Thank you for asking the right people at the right place!

I made a enhancement request in the fennec bug tracking system:

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=499904

Please feel free to comment and correct the entry.

This sounds great. But how do I do this? I'd like Mauku to open URLs in Midori instead of MicroB.

I'm also very interested in this. I wrote a small, rough script that uses dbus-launch to start it. Now I need to know how to implement it.

Code:
#!/bin/sh

dbus-launch midori "$*"

exit 0
Can anyone help us? Point us in the right direction?

@qwerty12 so I'm guessing that to modify osso_rpc_async* or osso_rpc_run* functions we have to get the source code for applications like osso_addressbook, modify it, compile it, and replace what we currently have? --yikes a little out of my leage

Well, you can modify xiojason's script here, but use other means for opening the browser, not dbus. It is a startup proxy after all.

Thats perfect! I have it instituted. I changed where it said "tear" for "midori" (as dumb as that sounds) and Midori will launch, but has no clue the arguments I sent it. I tried different things but I'm still lost.

Code:
        os.execl('/usr/bin/dbus-send', 
            '/usr/bin/dbus-send', '--session', '--type=method_call', 
            '--print-reply',
            '--dest=com.nokia.midori', '/com/nokia/midori',
            'com.nokia.midori.OpenAddress', 'string:%s' % uri)
Any suggestions? I've searched for hours here and on Google. Either I suck at searching or no ones wrote about that.

Well, Midori probably can't be launched with DBus or if it can, then not with these arguments. Try running it with a simple commandline like

Code:
midori url
As far as the commandline help goes, you can probably launch it with several addresses or even with a javascript file.
