In WxMaxima, if I click on Help >> WxMaxima Help, I receive error:
"Cannot open HTML help book: /gnu/store/...etc.../share/doc/wxmaxima-
20.01.3/wxmaxima.hhp".

If I click on Help >> Maxima Help, I receive error: "Cannot open HTML
help book: /home/christopher".

Hi, after a few months, I still have this problem, though the symptoms
changed somewhat. Now, if I click on either the Help >> wxMaxima help
menu, or the Help >> Maxima help menu, wxMaxima simply terminates, and
the word "Aborted" is dumped to stderr.

Hi all,

I saw this bug as I was updating WxMaxima today.  It seems the issue is with
"filetype->GetOpenCommand()" function calls in src/wxMaxima.cpp (lines 3796 and
4078 specifically).  These calls are used to find a browser that can open the
HTML help files.  We could hard-code a browser (e.g., icecat) as a stopgap while
we debug the wxWidgets library to see what exactly is going wrong.

Thoughts?
