      Description

      The following test application fails on Kubuntu 18.04

      #include <QGuiApplication>
      #include <QDesktopServices>
      #include <QUrl>
      
      int main(int argc, char *argv[])
      {
          QGuiApplication a(argc, argv);
          QDesktopServices::openUrl(QUrl("https://www.qt.io"));
      }
      

      with the following error message:

      Unable to detect a web browser to launch 'https://www.qt.io'
      

      The URLs in KDE applications' About dialogs, the links in the Welcome screen of Qt Creator produce the above error message when run from a terminal.

      The same test application works as expected on macOS with Qt 5.9.5.
