I've changed from Friefox to Chromium. Everything works fine except one thing: When I hit an apt: link, it opens the Ubuntu Software Center instead of starting the installation via apturl. (Yes, it is installed) How can I change the default handler for apt: to apturl?

(Raring x64)


I've found a solution: Just executed xdg-mime default apturl.desktop x-scheme-handler/apt and the problem was solved.
