Problems with Mozilla
Hello all! Linux newbie here.
I have a curious problem. I have a Dell machine with WinXP in one partition and Linux RedHat in the other partition.
When I am logged in as root, I can open up Mozilla no problem. When I log in with my non-root login, then if I click on the Mozilla icon, then the little hourglass just spins, and spins but then eventually quits and Mozilla fails to open. As far as I can tell, the Mozilla icon is pointing to the same thing ("mozilla %u") in both the root logon and the non-root logon.
Any ideas what gives?
Try starting it from a X-Term or simular program and see what it says. That might give a clue where it is going wrong.
Start from an X-term?
You can do what puntmuts said by opening up a terminal or the command line. On your taskbar, you should have a little black monitor that say terminal program when you mouse-over. Open that and try typing in
and see if it gives any errors.
Hope this helps.[/quote]
