View Full Version : [SOLVED] Can't Install Firefox Build

May 14th, 2010, 02:00 AM
I just upgraded my sister's Ubuntu to 10.04.

I have sucessfully updated its OpenOffice, but now I am having some problems installing Ubuntuzilla with Firefox build. I have tried numerous times to no avail. Here is what I see:
autumang@autumang:~$ echo -e "\ndeb http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/ubuntuzilla/mozilla/apt all main" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list > /dev/null

And, sure enough, checking Applications>Internet shows that (instead of having "Firefox Web Brouser" and the Firefox Build), I do not have the Firefox build to update Firefox with. What can I do to fix this?

Thanks for your time.

Take care,

If you're on a 64-bit system, UbuntuZilla supposidly doesn't work.
If you're on a 32-bit system, running this uber-command will probably sort you out :-)

sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get upgrade -y --force-yes; sudo dpkg -i --force-all /var/cache/apt/archives/firefox-mozilla-build_3.6.3-0ubuntu1_i386.deb; sudo apt-get -f install
