How can i open the file to edit it?

I have been advised elsewhen on this forum that to correct an issue (with connection to Tor-Browser) I can "fix this by going into the file and changing the lines (98) in /usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/torbrowser_launcher/: "

HOWEVER, I am 74 years old and not tech-savy. Is there a kind soul who can let me know how I can open the file and edit it?

Many thanks

It’s pretty simple:

  1. open a terminal
  2. go the path where the file is stored.
  3. Use the Nano Editor to open the file: nano
  4. Make edits as necessary. Be carefull not to change anything else.
  5. Store the edited file pressing CTRL+o
  6. Press CTRL+X to leave Nano

Done. Depending on the rights of the file and where it is stored you need to run Nano with root-permission, so sudo nano
