Hi. Try to create a new test-user, log in as this user, and test if the issue is still there..? Maybe try to delete a Kwrite, then install it again? BTW: Can you test somewhere a newer version of Fedora (30 or 31)?
Hrm, so that depends on what Dropbox is using to open the link then.
xdg-open <some html file>
open it in Firefox? That’s the default xdg tool that figures out what type of file it is and picks an application accordingly. I know gnome uses gio open, but I don’t know if KDE has its own version of that.
In the meantime, testing with a new user would be very useful, as @vits95 suggested. That will at least tell us if this is a system issue or something specific to your user configuration.
@vits95 creating a new user and trying to sign in to dropbox correctly opens the webpage in firefox
I would add that the new user was using gnome while this user is using kde plasma
@FranciscoD xdg-open my html file opens it as text in KWrite
So, apparently, it is something related to my user configuration… would be awesome to have any clue about what it could be
EDIT: I tried to change desktop environment to GNOME and it opened it correctly in the browser. So now it seems to be a problem with Plasma. If any of you guys would have any suggestion on how to try to fix it with Plasma would be appreciated
EDIT: Apparently the on-launch webpage redirect goes fine but then dropbox client fails to launch properly, so it is a dead end with GNOME too, just in another way
Sorry, I wrote it terribly.
I meant that by running GNOME the sign in page opened fine in firefox and I was able to proceed. Then (always using GNOME) dropbox keeps failing to launch. Switching back to Plasma, since client authenticated successfully (while running GNOME), application seems to work properly.
