    How do you install dissenter browser

    I tried installing after downloading from dissenter website. Compyter just sits there. Is there a secret?

    When installing unpackaged software, start by reading the README and INSTALL files.

    Yes, of course.
    But this one is already packaged in deb or rpm, hence my question above. One would think that downloading the deb file and installing the usual way would be enough.

    No secret, very simple. I'm sure you'll eventually figure out.
    If not, well, whatever..

    So if you installed it from a deb or whatever, just run it in a console and look at the error messages. There may be a missing library or ten.

    Right... So what's the problem, exactly?

    These are the install instructions from the Dissenter download page

    Optimally, let your browser open the deb file with the software installer, and click install. Otherwise, download the package file and install it by running sudo dpkg -i dissenter-browser_1.5.114_amd64.deb
    Did you use the command line? Or is it the software installer that does nothing?

    I think my problem is that I have a 32 bit kernel.
    I came across a site that say to run this sudo dpkg --add-architecture amd64 to fix that problem. Can anyone verify this or offer another option?
