    Re: Howto Install 32 bit Firefox with Flash w/sound and Java for AMD64

    I guess I did a combination of the script and manual install. When the script took me to the Adobe GERMAN website for the flash, I abandoned that install effort and started with the instructions for the manual HowTo. I definitely want everything English on my system. Everything worked great. I have a clean install of Drake 64 and I want to make this browser correct before doing a deep backup.

    I log off happy. The next day is when I begin to wonder.

    On boot, after username/password -- ubuntu tells me the home folder will be ignored, even though I give it the correct username and password.

    I've read every post on this thread. There is one brief mention about the "owner" in user/local/firefox32/plugins

    one folder up -- firefox says I'm the owner
    plugins folder -- symlink to /usr/lib32/firefox32/plugins
    lib32/firefox32/plugins -- Owner and Group Owner is root for all the plugins this HowTo explains about except for the java. I'm the owner for java plug-in.
    From the Permissions Tab for flash, mPlayer....
    Code:
    Text view: -rwxr-xr-x
    Number view: 1200755
    I'd like to change the owner to my user account to see if this fixes the logon problem. I don't know what all I need to change. The Group? The Owner?

    Thanks in advance.

    ============
    Nevermind. I banged around in the forums. Found out I could reveal hidden files, look at the permissions tab for my User Folder and User /.dmrc and just click the checkmarks. Folder is now 744 and ./dmrc is 644. I boot normal. Great! I like this browser setup better than the Automatix2 Swiftfox because the Firefox32 is upgradeable. It does run slower than the Swiftfox and maybe the preferences in the Firefox32 will fine tune that. Thank you!!!

    EDIT: Please ignore the request. I was having problems with my wireless and didn't know it (since everything else worked). Got the file while hard-wired.

    Could someone host the script and the deb files somewhere else please? My connection to the comcast server keeps getting reset, so I can't even start the process.

    Thanks.

    I used this howto and it installed ff version 1.5. At least now i finally have flash working. I tried several things to get it to work with the amd64 version of ff 2.0 but no luck...

    I was wondering why the howto installed ff 1.5? Is it possible to upgrade to 2.0?

    Thanks for the great howto.

    Was just about to ask the same thing, my 64bit firefox is 1.5.0.9 but my 32bit is 1.5.0.7 I can download a 32bit 1.5.0.9 from Moz but its a tar.gz. I don't know how to convert that to .deb. So now my firefoxs' are out of sync.

    Re: Howto Install 32 bit Firefox with Flash w/sound and Java for AMD64

    Arr ya, but I can't install the 64bit version of 2.0 so then they would be way out of sync, I'd like to either have them both on 2.0 or 1.5 and keep the versions in sync, otherwise when the start up they complain about being older versions and wanted to update and all that, if that makes any sense?

    Anyone know if those might be the reasons?
    Same here. Any progress on this Gearshifter?

    I don't get your pango errors however. It was working fine in Edgy, but the bump to Feisty seems to have stalled something.
