Chromium gives me this error message:

Code:
% xdg-mime query default text/html
chromium-browser-chromium.desktop

% xdg-open test.html
[16364:16393:0125/201225.429632:ERROR:browser_gpu_channel_host_factory.cc(107)] Failed to launch GPU process.


The solution seems to be in the BROWSER environment variable:

Code:
% export BROWSER=google-chrome
% xdg-open test.html


To set the value of the BROWSER variable permanent:

Code:
root$  echo 'BROWSER="google-chrome"' >> /etc/env.d/99chromium


Reporting just in case somebody gets the same error message.

Cheers!
