Where can I set a different browser to start OpenRefine?

Hi, everybody! Glad to use this wonderful tool!

I normally use Firefox as my default browser. But I want to use Chromium for OpenRefine, and call the whole thing from a script.

I tried to find something in refine.ini configuration in order to change the browser that is call after for the openrefine web server. But I failed. Can someone point me in the correct direction, please?

This is what I’m trying to achieve, but since FF is default browser in my system, I always get it open :S

#!/usr/bin/env bash

qterminal -e /home/simonapetra/bin/openrefine-3.6.2/refine
chromium --new-window --enable-crashpad

I don’t know of a way to open a non-default browser but maybe disabling the entire feature does the trick for you?

That worked! Thank you so much!

Well, taking your suggestion as start point (which is totally correct, of course), I found that from the command-line, I can use the -x flag to add the key-value pair refine.headless=true after the refine executable:

qterminal -e /home/simonapetra/bin/openrefine-3.6.2/refine -x refine.headless=true

Here is where I find it:
