Updating Mozilla in MDK 10

by chuckieu / September 26, 2004 2:41 AM PDT

I have downloaded Mozilla 1.7.3 and tried to install in
Mandrake 10. Thats wrong. I HAVE installed it, in every possible location. Cannot get the quick launch to load it
instead of the default 1.6. Had to reinstall 1.6 so I could have Mozilla. Going to take much more than I know
(which is almost nothing) about programming to change the
default in /usr/bin/mozilla. If anyone can supply a reasonably simple step by step, or point to source of
info, I would greatly appreciate it. chuck

This may be totally irrelevent and unrelated, and maybe the page Robert sent you to has solved your problem, but I ran into a problem with Firefox and Thunderbird not launching as a regular user only to discover that if I launched them as root first I was then able to launch them as a regular user. My knowledge is far lacking as to why this may be, but it worked, so if you haven't already solved the problem give it a try. Hope that helps - Gary

Thanks, Bob. Bookmarked site and will go thru everything. May be other things I can use.
Thanks, Gary. That's what I have been doing. Entering from root in the terminal. Maybe I just haven't used the right combination.
Will work on this. Playing with things like this seem to be how I learn more about Linux than anything else.

Haven't found info yet on substituting newer version in quick launch button. Did play with various ways to setup a new launcher and got it working right. Only problem is not having Mozilla icon (kinda like that). Tried using
same settings on default quick launch button, no go. had
another idea I'll try. chuck
