    Debian Lenny iBook G3


    Hey I'm new to this but I have an ibook g3 dual usb.. 600mhz/640mb/80gb

    I just installed Debian Lenny as the only OS on it.. so far so good... didnt have sound but just figured that out... i installed opera web browser on it.. I rebooted and when I try to open iceweasel it says starting iceweasel then nothing happens. I try to open epiphany web browser and says mozilla failed to initialize or something like that.. I removed iceweasel and re installed it and im still getting the same problem. Any suggestions?

    ~$ sudo xulrunner-1.9 --register-global

    We trust you have received the usual lecture from the local System
    Administrator. It usually boils down to these three things:

    #1) Respect the privacy of others.
    #2) Think before you type.
    #3) With great power comes great responsibility.

    [sudo] password for cj:
    cj is not in the sudoers file. This incident will be reported.


    I put in my password and it says ^

    oh ok is because you dont have privileges then you need to login as root
    type su ($ <- thats ur prompt)

    Code:
    $ su 
    type root's password
    (your prompt is gonna change from $ to #)
    # xulrunner-1.9 --register-global

    to have privileges you need to do this
    in terminal type su

    $ su
    type root's password
    then type visudo
    # visudo
    is gonna open something like this
    Code:
    # /etc/sudoers
    #
    # This file MUST be edited with the 'visudo' command as root.
    #
    # See the man page for details on how to write a sudoers file.
    #
    Defaults
    env_reset
    # Host alias specification
    # User alias specification
    # Cmnd alias specification
    # User privilege specification
    root ALL=(ALL) ALL
    user ALL=(ALL) ALL
    # Uncomment to allow members of group sudo to not need a password
    so just add below root ALL=(ALL) ALL
    user ALL=(ALL) ALL
    (change user for your user)
    save ctrl + o
    and exit ctrl + x
    next time you run a command with sudo is gonna ask you for your password and you are good to go

    I did this and saved and exit then did what you wanted earlier... still says command not found.
