Opening a Command Terminal/Window

more options

I am using a Linux/Ubuntu computer. I downloaded a program that instructs me to "Open a browser window" to enter certain commands. I am fairly new Linux user and am requesting assistance on how to open a Firefox browser "command" window and enter a Linux command.

Here is the program's URL: https://frontend.bredbandskollen.se/download/README.txt

See Item: --Browser

Thanks for your assistance!

If I understand this properly then you need to start the bbk_cli command line interface via a Linux terminal window and add the --Browser switch: bbk_cli --Browser bbk_cli will try to open a web page on the Bredbandskollen's server in the default browser, so you need to make sure that Firefox is the default browser. This web page is supposed to communicate with the bbk_cli application via a local websocket connection between the browser and a port opened by the bbk_cli application., so no further action should be necessary.
