Unable to pull up manuals in 13.2 Linux version

Postby Cubit User » Wed Aug 15, 2012 9:01 am

When I clicked on Cubit tutorials from the Help pull-down menu, it opened a separate dialogue box saying that it couldn’t find the default path for Firefox. I put in Mozilla and it wouldn’t execute the command. Then I checked the box to open in a separate window. A separate window opens, the cursor blinks, but nothing happens. I don’t know how to reverse this or to access the commands that cubit stores to change this. That dialogue box that had the browser commands is no longer accessible. Need help here.

Cubit goes through some steps to try to find the browser:

1. It tries to use xdg-open to launch the default web browser.
2. DEFAULT_BROWSER environment variable
3. BROWSER environment variable
4. gnome-open (on gnome)
5. kfmclient openURL (on KDE)
6. firefox (direct call hoping it's in the path)
7. mozilla (direct call hoping it's in the path)

There might be something on your system that is configured wrong.

If it helps, when I click the link to the tutorial it opens the following URL:

<cubit installation directory>/bin/help/step_by_step_tutorials/step_by_step_tutorials.htm

If you could manually try that URL, we can figure out if the problem is in the tutorials installation, or with the browser.
