On my computer (running Ubuntu 18.04, Obsidian installed from snap), when I click an external link in Obsidian, Firefox opens. I want to use Chrome.
All other programs that open web links with external viewers use Chrome, only Obsidian launches Firefox.
- Ubuntu Settings / Default Applications / Web = Google Chrome
gnome-www-browser uses Chrome
xdg-open uses Chrome
sensible-browser uses Chrome
webbrowser module opens Chrome
- How can I configure Obsidian on Linux to use Chrome instead of Firefox?
- What mechanizm does Obsidian on Linux use when launching a browser for external links?
This also started happening to me today, I’m not sure why.
Previously when I clicked on a link in Obsidian it would open on my default browser (Chromium), but as of today links in Obsidian are opening in Firefox.
I’m using Ubuntu 22.04.1.
What I did is use this plugin and set it to whatever browser you want to open links with! All the best
With the old version of Obsidian (0.x.x - don’t remember the exact I was using), it used the expected browser for me as well.
I believe the functionality changed when I installed the 1.x.x version of Obsidian.
