Package: boinc-manager
Version: 5.2.13a-1
Severity: normal

Using Gnome desktop. Mozilla as default Web browser under Preferred
Applications. I hit the "SETI at home" button and get the
following error:

"BOINC could not determine what your default browser is.
Please verify that you have either the 'mailcap' package installed or
'mime' package installed, and that the 'text/html' mime type is
configured for your favorite browser. Another method is to set the
BROWSER environment variable to point to whatever your favorite
web browser is.  Please open a browser window to the following URL:

I DO have the mime-support package installed. Please let me know if you
need any additional info. Thanks!
