[SOLVED] Links from Skype’s IM chat won’t open.

I have noticed that upon clicking on a link in a Skype’s IM chat nothing happens. Decided to investigate. Figured out that there is a error message:

QWidget: Cannot create a QWidget when no GUI is being used
/usr/bin/xdg-open: line 513: 3718 Aborted kde-open –noninteractive “$1”

Decided to mess around with it.

The solution:

Open file /usr/bin/xdg-open as root.

su -c "mcedit /usr/bin/xdg-open:515"

Edit the line from:

kde-open --noninteractive "$1"

so it looks like this:

kde-open "$1"

Save the file (F2) close the mcedit (F10).

Click on the link in the Skype’s IM now. It should open the content of the link in a new tab in Your default browser.
