Running Xubuntu 12.04 with XFCE 4.8. There is an application "Web Browser" on the Applications Menu. It appears to be the GOOGLE CHROME browser. Due to hardware limitations, I have to start Chrome with a command line. I see no way to do that ... right click on Web Browser from the menu simply runs Web Browser.
I separately downloaded and installed CHROME. There is a Chrome icon on my desktop. From that icon, a right click/properties allows me to create the needed command line.
I am ASSUMING I have Chrome installed TWICE (About on each shows same exact version) .. once as Web Browser and again as Chrome. The OS came with Web Browser and I installed Chrome.
Here is where it gets foggy. If I edit properties for CHROME, I can create the necessary command line. I dragged the Web Browser from the menu to the desktop ... creating a shortcut. Right click on shortcut ... properties ... and it APPEARS I can edit a command line ... which I did, but it did not work. Closer look shows vast differences between the two properties. I have concluded that Web Browser is somehow linked to the MENU much differently than CHROME is linked to its desktop icon.
Fine ... so solution seems to be uninstall CHROME ... don't need the same browser twice. Find out how to 'command line' Web Browser ... hence this post.
Only problem there is ..... I fear CHROME is installed OVER Web Browser somehow. If I uninstall CHROME ... system is honked up pretty good. I fear this because one time I preferred Xfe file manager over Thunar .. and after installing Xfe .. and uninstalling THUNAR ... that is what happened ... honked up pretty good. I learned ... don't go uninstalling stuff without knowing what you are doing (beyond the obvious).
Soooo my questions are:
Can I safely uninstall CHROME?
If I can ..... how do I do a command line edit for Web Browser?
I figure this has to do more with XFCE than it does with merely an application question ... which is why I post in this forum. Forgive me if I am out of place.
Thank you in advance.
