I was trying to use a get .debs website the other day and with alot of fustration of firefox saying “Firefox does not have the correct protocol to open this file [.apt]” I finally figured out that I did not have “apt-url” installed by default on kUbuntu. This can be fixed by simply opening a terminal window and typing:
sudo apt-get install apturl
Then restart firefox [doesn’t matter what version you have]. Go to download another .deb / .apt file and when it asks you what you would like to use to open the file browse to /usr/bin and pick whatever installs your programs! Presto your done! 😉
You can now use sites like, Playdeb.net more on Playdeb.net tommorrow!
