Hi all,

recently TeXworks provides nice manual and we can see
it from menu with a browser.

But, strangely, on one of my Debian system it calls 
/opt/google/chrome/google-chrome as a browser and, 
because there is no such browser on my system, it fails 
to show me a manual.  (On another system, it works fine.)

I investigated various methods to define a default browser,
like x-www-browser, gconf-editor etc. but no success.

I'd like to know how TeXworks selects a default browser
for manual and if we can define it at compile time.

Best regards,			2011-7-15(Fri)
