Prepending my home folder to URL, Why ?

Postby antonr » 2021-02-01 08:32

Good Day

After working with Debian for almost 10 ten years now , this is the first time I need to post a request , as I am scratching my head around what appears to be a nasty situation.

I am running Debian Buster as a VM under Oracle VirtualBox , which in turn is hosted by Window 10. My networking works very well , even thru company proxy .

Recently , I have encountered that a number of applications prepends my home folder to the http URL , and returns an error as follows :

/home/antonr/https:/code.visualstudio.com: No such file or directory

this message box appears as soon after I request a update download for Visual Studio Code.

Now , clearly https:/code.visualstudio.com is correct , but where does the /home/antonr/ comes into play.

At first I thought the issue would be related to the application itself , but it is not as other apps exposes exactly the same behavior .


is it some kind of redirection on http level ?

Thanking you in advance .

Just a random thought but would be looking at Virtualbox and how it handles bridged networking. More going on than Buster, clearly this isn't a conventional install or setup.

Check ~/.config/mimeapps.list

Perhaps try running the applications from a terminal to see if they return any error messages (or check ~/.xsession-errors).
