Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Hi, I was working with Chromium since a year or more without any problem. As Chromium is not updated in the ppa since version 18 I have removed it and switched back to Firefox.
I made Firefox the default browser but clicking a ling inside email (thunderbird) continues to launch Chromium. So I removed Chromium, and now when I click a url link from inside Thunderbird it does not launch nothing at all ... no reaction at all. Of course I can copy and paste the link manually to Firefox and it works, but it's a pain.
I have already check the following:
- Firefox IS the default browser. It is set both in Firefox and in Gnome applications setting
- In: ~/.local/share/applications/mimeapps.list , firefox is well configured
- Also in: /usr/share/applications/defaults.list
I use Ubuntu 12.04.
The same occurs either I login with Unity or Gnome 3
I discovered this with Firefox 14.01 (did not used it before, so I don't know if it would work ok with previous versions). Now I have updated to Firefox 15 from the ppa beta channel... no change in the behaviour.
Hi Albinar, I have found the solution ... there is in reality something in the Thunderbird setup. I had to go to Edit > Preferences > Attachments and select "Contents type" as HTML and HTMLS, then changed it from "Firefox" to "Always Ask". Then when I clicked a link a dialog appears asking for an action. I choose "open in Firefox" and "not ask again" .... and that's it. It works !! Thanks.
