Evince fails to follow a link to Firefox with the following error :
Failed to execute child process "/usr/lib/firefox35/firefox" (Permission denied)
Some people suggest to set the path correctly by creating a soft link.
For example if the Firefox is now in the directory /usr/local/bin/firefox then create the following soft link: ln -s /usr/local/bin/firefox /usr/lib/firefox35/firefox
This DOES NOT work.
The correct way to do this is to set the path correctly in the gconf-editor.
- Open gconf-editor .
- Goto /desktop/gnome/url-handlers/http/.
- Change the command to just firefox "%s".
- The OS would figure out where the Firefox is installed and act accordingly.
The mozplugger does not work.
The best way is to goto Firefox -> Preferences -> Applications.
Change the Adobe documents handler to use Evince.
