When running command lines in bash... lets say I run a command that outputs some info to the screen. In that text screen of info are several URLs. In bash, you can right click the URL text and select "Open Link"... which would supposedly open your default browser and open the link with that. However, I get an error instead. Its a little grey box that has a title, "Error - Konsole" and says: "Could not connect to host 127.0.0.1: Connection refused."
I'm not sure why its trying to connect to my localhost. It doesn't matter what the URL points to, the error is the same. It never even attempts to open FireFox, my default browser. I can tell this, because FireFox always has a delay to open and respond to anything. However, this error is instantaneous. Not to mention again, the title is "Error - Konsole". So this is not a FireFox issue. It seems like its trying to route to a local proxy or something. That is just a guess, I have no clue.
Here are some things:
-- I know the "Konsole" is the terminal emulator for KDE, if that helps.
-- " Could not connect to host 127.0.0.1: Connection refused " might be a similar issue.. or the same. (I do not think it was properly solved.)
Does anyone have any ideas? Can anyone help or offer a suggestion?
If not, a secondary question. How do I check my proxies?
(I have Linux Mint 17.3 KDE Desktop)
