I'm brand new to eOS, but I've used other linux distros before.

I have installed Gdebi ok.

My problem is that Gdebi isn't working properly when I run it after clicking on a file in Files explorer and run 'Open With' an error box appears- "unable to open files or uris with this app".

It installs everything ok if run from within Applications- it's UI finds, opens and installs without issue.

Is the problem with the installation of Gdebi ( I've reinstalled several times), or with Files? I've tried different .deb files so an isolated corrupt .deb file is not the issue.

Thanks for any help available.
