Wait, wrong bug. This is still an issue and needs a fix in ubiquity directly to start up a browser when slideshow links are clicked.

This bug also applies to Lubuntu Next (LXQt).
Clicking the link to visit our website on both the:
 - Need Help; and
 - Thank you for Choosing Lubuntu Slides
does nothing.

As far as I can tell all the code is there to start a browser when a link is clicked. In this case, I think the issues come from bad config somewhere in the installer environment for QT: XDG or something else is missing to associate clicking a link with the application that should open it.

Just encountered this bug in my test of Kubuntu i386.
