I tried to install and run Fakturama a piece of office software. It installs but it doesn't start. In a forum they say:

edit /usr/share/Fakturama/configuration/config.ini and insert org.eclipse.swt.browser.DefaultType=mozilla

(The German original: editiere die Datei /usr/share/Fakturama/configuration/config.ini und füge die Zieile: org.eclipse.swt.browser.DefaultType=mozilla hinzu.)

How to do that? When I go to that config.ini file and open it with scratch I am told I can't edit the file and have to save to a different location?

The area the file resides in requires elevated privileges to be able to modify it. You can edit is as follows: From the command line enter:

sudo scratch-text-editor /usr/share/Fakturama/configuration/config.ini

You will be able to edit and save the file this way.
