The very best OS for Raspberry Pi 4/3/2 – genpi64 :: gentoo-on-rpi-64bit

Posted 03-24-2020 at 02:50 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)

Difficulty resetting the default browser in Debian/Xfce

Posted 03-21-2020 at 01:48 PM by flshope

This blog entry refers to Debian 10.3 and Xfce 4.12 on a desktop machine.

On a whim, I decided to reset my default browser from Chromium (Version 80.0.3987.132) to Firefox (version 68.6.0esr). Shortly thereafter, I decided to go back to Chromium and reset the default at Xfce menu item
