Thread: Firebird question
Enjoy an ad free experience by logging in. Not a member yet? Register.
ive downloaded the MozillaFirebird browser from Mozilla.org and im really satisfied with it (i think its better than Mozilla). the only problem is that i didnt download it as .rpm (im using mandrake 9.1), actually there was only a tarball. so i extracted it, got it goin' and noticed that the browser needed a flash plugin to run some specific animations on some pages. so i downloaded it ran the installer and then it says something like "install flash plugin for mozilla and galeon?".
I see no Firebird
i checked it later on and the problem sustained, Mozilla got the plugin but firebird didnt.
now i wonder if you have to make it a "system folder" or something like that. (maybe i should have extracted it into a .firebird directory instead..... i dont know)
Please help me , how do you make tarballs "system-filic"?

Look in your Mozilla plugin directory and find the flash files ( libflashplayer.so & flashplayer.xpt ). Copy them into your MozillaFirebird plugin directory. Mine is /usr/local/MozillaFirebird/plugins/.
If you don't know your Mozilla plugin path use the following: find / -name *flashplayer*[ [ SykkN alloc ] initWithThePowerTo: destroyYouAll ];

I believe the tarball they give out is a precompiled binary. i suggest getting the actual source and bullding it from scratch.The best things in life are free.
