I have an app installed locally on Silverblue that needs to open a web page. But, even though firefox is installed,
which firefiox yields nothing, and the firefox desktop file doesn’t specify a path to firefox. So where are these programs installed? How can I call them from bash?
Thanks. I’m just learning silverblue, and it can be a challenge.
I think that on Silverblue, Firefox is installed as a flatpak.
Try to issue this command:
If it is there, try to issue:
flatpak run org.mozilla.firefox
Firefox is part of the base system and it is in:
I have noticed you have spelled incorrectly
firefiox, maybe that is why
which is not finding it?
What program is having an issue launching Firefox and how did you install it?
So Silverblue still uses rpmostree for it, even if Firefox is now available on Flathub? (It is a lot of time that I don’t give Silverblue a try).
Flathub is not setup by default in Silverblue but in new installs (mine is not new ) it could be that Firefox is installed from Fedora’s own flatpak remote.
In my case Firefox (and I have never layered it) is in the base system.
Ahem You are right!
However there is a Fedora flatpak repository. Isn’t it included as well in the latest release of Silverblue?
You’re right. I was running in a toolbox. But I got confused between my toolbox and the host. So firefox was not in my toolbox. Sorry about that, I should have been more careful.
See from my reply: “but in new installs (mine is not new ) it could be that Firefox is installed from Fedora’s own flatpak remote”
Basically I do not know for new installs cause I have not installed Silverblue form scratch for over a year
