  • Linux Lite: 4.0 64bit

  • MEMORY: 256mb
After the latest updates, several of my programs will not load (Firefox, Thunderbird, VLC, mines) and when I clicked the suport icon I get an error message "failed to execute default Web Browser. input/output error.

Any help would be appreciated.

Any RESTORE POINTS to fall back on? Open Systemback to check.

Hi, I had the same issue !

It started to happen after installing the latest updates for a new installation of LL 3.8

  • I installed LL 3.8 from scratch (all fine)
    But, after I installed the latest updates... most of the applications stopped launching anymore.
    So, I searched the web and found the following solution: run from terminal

Code: [Select]
sudo apt remove virtualbox-guest*

Hope it helps,
best regards
