View Full Version : [SOLVED] Install an application so that it can be launched from the terminal

October 19th, 2011, 08:39 AM
I had to update my Firefox from ver 3 (i.e. the one that Ubuntu 10.04 ships with) and move it to Firefox 7.
So firefox gave a tar.gz file to extract the browser from. I ran sudo apt-get remove firefox, and then extracted the contents of the tarball to /opt/. But when i type the command firefox in the terminal it responds by saying firefox not installed. I am now using a launch shortcut to open firefox, but what i want to know is
How can I install the application so that I can open it from the terminal?
