How to make apt:// urls to open with apturl?

sudo apt-get install apturl
Latest version of chromium already uses xdg-open for any x-scheme-handler links.To configure xdg-open with apturl , go through following steps:
Make sure they are all set correctly:
  • Hit Alt+F2
  • Enter gconf-editor
  • Navigate to the /desktop/gnome/url-handlers/apt/command, it should be set to apturl "%s"
In terminal:

xdg-mime default apturl.desktop x-scheme-handler/apt
