I had a problem with newsbeuter with opening links using qutebrowser (it was holding up newsbeuter). The workaround was the following script:
1 2 3 4
#!/bin/sh # wrapper for newsbeuter exec ~/src/qutebrowser/qutebrowser.py "$*" > /dev/null 2>&1 &
(don't forget to make it executable)
And then use this in ~/.newsbeuter.config:
browser "~/src/qutebrowser_wrapper :'open -t %u'"
