web apps (SOLVED)
« on: August 21, 2016, 01:30:28 am »
Hello everyone,

can't figure out how to open Google Drive and the other web apps from the menu. Nothing happens by clicking on them, it just leaves the menu but the browser won't open the webpage.

I know how to use Ice and it works fine, but  what about all these links to web apps, like in Menu > Office, should I edit something to run them?

My system: Peppermint 7 - 64bit, Chromium as default browser (I removed FF)

Open a terminal and run these 3 commands in sequence -
Code: [Select]
cp -vr ~/.local/share/applications ~/.local/share/applications-backupthen
Code: [Select]
cd ~/.local/share/applicationsthen
Code: [Select]
grep -rl 'ice-firefox ' ./ | xargs sed -i 's/ice-firefox /chromium-browser --app=/g'(the first command backs up the directory just in case .. the second changes the current directory .. and the final command searches the current directory for files that contain the string "ice-firefox ", then replaces that string with the string "chromium-browser --app=")

ALL your SSB's should now open in Chromium rather than Firefox.
