Making Google-Chrome the default browser in Slacko 5.6.1
I have a frugal installation of Slacko 5.6.1 non PAE on a USB stick. I have installed google-chrome from the puppy-slacko 14 repository (Using it now!).
I can start it from the menu OK. On first run it asked if I wanted to make it the default browser and I ticked yes but the internet icon still launches firefox.
If I do in a terminal
# cat /usr/local/bin/defaultbrowser
exec firefox "@"
so clearly the default browser was not changed but if I launch firefox it asks if I want to make it my default browser so something has changed.
What should I change default browser to? How can I see what clicking on Google Chrome in the menu is calling?
If I run /opt/google/chrome/google-chrome in a terminal I get a message about not being able to run as root.

There is a program in Slacko to change default programs.
Click Setup icon on desktop.
