In Ubuntu 18.04, Plasma desktop, i open dolphin, right-click -> Create new -> Link to location (URL). This creates a weblink using a .desktop file. The contents of my file after creation are
[Desktop Entry] Icon=text-html Type=Link URL[$e]=https://www.theguardian.com/film/2016/mar/27/50-best-documentaries-alex-gibney-joshua-oppenheimer-james-marsh
When I click on the file, I expect a browser to open and load the proper website. Instead, I get
Error Failed to add a plugin to the panel No running instance of xfce4-panel was found
This used to work before the OS upgrade. What's going on here?
