UPDATE: Dissenter isn't doing this anymore and appears to be working as it should... strange

Does anybody else have an issue with Dissenter not being able to set itself as the default browser in GNOME?

I'm not experiencing any of the issues that Midir is having, but every time Dissenter starts it says it's not the default browser, even if it is.

And, if another browser is the default browser and I start Dissenter, clicking the button to set Dissenter as the default browser doesn't actually set it as the default browser.

Brave is able to set itself as the default browser.

I've run Dissenter (alongside Brave, Chrome, Chromium, and Firefox) on Debian on GNOME and this feature worked.

The differences are 1) GNOME is older on Debian, 2) This package uses a different .desktop file from the one in the .deb from the website, and 3) This package version is newer (version 0.66.100) than the version on the Dissenter website (version 0.66.99)

Any ideas?

You're welcome Midir. It looks like the upstream devs have resolved the GNOME issue. I can run them both at the same time and they don't interfere with each other

Just reinstalled and looking good so far. Thanks my dude :)

I made a dumb oversight for the icon. It should work fine now

Thank you for the support loonixman.

For the time being I uninstalled Brave and Dissenter is working now as intended. The only issue remaining is the icon not showing up in the application launcher and start menu.

I've tried everything I could and it seems that Brave and Dissenter can't coexist in GNOME. I'll contact the upstream devs for more insight into this issue. In every other DE, they work just fine when they're both installed.

I use Pamac on Manjaro.

Thank you loonixman, unfortunately in my .cache folder there is only a file with some letters and numbers, but no directory. So I can't delete it :/

Edit: I tried removing the files in /var/cache/pacman/pkg/ but that didn't help either. Still the brave icon.

Midir, uninstall the package and delete it from the .cache/{aur_helper} directory. If you've customised the .desktop file, back it up and delete the original. Now reinstall the package.

How to do a clean rebuild?
