I've installed the CS50 Appliance, but when I click the gedit button nothing happens. I tried to update the package, but when I enter to Browse Network in the File Manager, I have this error : Failed to open "/on". The specified location is not supported. I don't know how to download the update for gedit :/

Thank you for your help !

Try executing the following commands in the terminal

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install --reinstall gedit

the password is "crimson" if you are asked for one.

  • I had the same issue the other day and I did the update and reinstall and it is now working fine, thank you. Jan 19, 2015 at 22:58
