    How do I run the gnome terminal or is that the terminal under accesories
    First, yes that is the terminal.
    Second, click on your top menu bar, Places and then Home Folder. See if you can find the file firefox_install. If it's not there then it either didn't get extracted or was extracted to another directory.

    Re: Firefox 1.5 installer script

    can anyone tell me how to go back to using 1.0.7 as the default?

    there are certain extensions i need which are 1.0.7 only, and i am also having a little trouble accessing some sites.

    i really appreciate the script, but i would like to go back to 1.0.7 for now. Can anyone help?

    thks.

    EDIT: i have found a file "firefox.ubuntu" in /usr/bin which loads 1.0.7. if i modifiy my launcher to that file, should i do anything else? thks again.

    This is what u need to do:
    Code:
    mv ~/.mozilla ~/.mozilla-1.5
    sudo rm -f /usr/bin/firefox /usr/bin/mozilla-firefox
    sudo ln -s /usr/lib/mozilla-firefox/firefox /usr/bin/firefox
    sudo ln -s /usr/lib/mozilla-firefox/firefox /usr/bin/mozilla-firefox
    now run firefox as usual from menu

    Re: HOWTO: Install Firefox 1.5 from mozilla.org

    i managed to get firefox finally running, but instead of executing just 'firefox', i had to execute 'bash firefox', it might sound very silly, but why is that? i bet it's a newbie question.

    also, how can i get a link in the desktop to execute 'bash firefox'? i just tried putting that in the command line of the link but did not work.

    thanks

    Re: HOWTO: Install Firefox 1.5 from mozilla.org

    Can anyone help me with the new version of Thunderbird? I followed the Wiki instructions. When I run thunderbird from the command line, it opens Thunderbird 1.5. However, when I now click my Thunderbird icon, nothing opens - running mozilla-thunderbird from the command line gives:

    Code:
    run-mozilla.sh: Cannot execute /opt/thunderbird/mozilla-thunderbird-bin.
    I think I've messed up the symbolic links, but I don't really know how to fix it.

    Re: HOWTO: Install Firefox 1.5 from mozilla.org

    This thread is still about Firefox 1.5 right?

    I have been unable to in my limited Linux knowledge to figure this out, can you please point me to the person or place I should post this error message?

    /opt/firefox/run-mozilla.sh: line 159: 8731 Floating point exception"$prog" ${1+"$@"}

    I have tried the wiki method and also used the automatix script and both turn up the same error message. Could this have something to do with the Easyubuntu script? I used that to install the media playback mess and nvida drivers...

    The install didn't go exactly as per the HOWTO.
    However it was close enough that Firefox 1.5 is up and running on this machine.
    Thanks,

    I can't get Java to work with this either. I tried everything suggested here several times. Note, This is a fresh install with Automatix.

    After running ./install_firefox I got this error message:

    /lib/i386/libjavaplugin_nscp.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

    try installing firefox 1.5 with automatix 4.0

    Re: Firefox 1.5 installer script

    Ok, I finally got Java working. This fix may only apply to those who installed Java with Automatix v3.5 or less.
    I needed to make a little change to arnieboy's suggested fix:

    sudo rm -f /opt/firefox/plugins/libjava*

    ORIGINAL:
    sudo ln -s /usr/local/jre1.5.0_05/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so /opt/firefox/plugins/

    CHANGED:
    sudo ln -s /usr/lib/j2re1.5-sun/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so /opt/firefox/plugins/

    works great. Now lets see what new goodies are in Automatix 4.0

    > hey thanks for that pcatiprodotnet
    Your welcome, I hope this helps the others above.
