If I clicked IDs...

Every time I clicked on an IDs number (For example: Ids: ISBN),
calibre opened the ebook editor. I don't want that!
In the past, calibre always opened the "worldcat.org" internet link.
How can I solve this problem?

Please don't post the same issue in multiple forums, I've deleted the one in Library Managements - see Guideline # 3.



When I click on an ISDN worldcat opens at the relevant page - can you post as value that doesn't work, the ones I tested were 13 digit numbers.

All ISBN numbers have always 13 digits!
Examples:

9783867311359
9783864454622
9783000316197
etc.

Now, calibre starts always the ebook editor
when I click a ISBN number in the
"about the book" section.
In the past, calibre opens the url address
"worldcat.org" under google chrome.
I work with KDE Neon.
I am puzzled.

Yours sincerely

Most likely xdg-open is broken on your system. That is th eprogram responsible for opening URLs.

Not so, my calibre Padawan. There is this mythical thing called a 10 digit isbn. I have seen it, in a dream, a vision, with the inner eye...

"What is an ISBN?
ISBN is the acronym for International Standard Book Number. This 10 or 13-digit number identifies a specific book, an edition of a book, or a book-like product (such as an audiobook). Since 1970 each published book has a unique ISBN. In 2007, assigned ISBNs changed from 10 digits to 13."

From ABE Books.

Thank you!
I solved my problem with:

For Firefox:

xdg-mime default firefox.desktop text/html
xdg-mime default firefox.desktop x-scheme-handler/http
xdg-mime default firefox.desktop x-scheme-handler/https


For Google Chrome:

xdg-mime default google-chrome.desktop text/html
xdg-mime default google-chrome.desktop x-scheme-handler/http
xdg-mime default google-chrome.desktop x-scheme-handler/https
