    Download the linux version of firefox. Go to the directory where you downloaded the file in the command prompt logged in as root. The type ¨sh firefox-installer¨ and follow the installer options.

    - or you can add the norlug rpms repository to your software installer and use that, if that's more to your liking...

    Worked like a charm for me...

    then KDE menu

    go to your /system/configration/configure your desktop

    accessibilty
    then
    keyboard layout


    add arabic, then

    It is done....

    install FF-1.0.3

    Hi.. two ways to install FF-1.0.3:
    First of all, i guess is better to save your old: prefs.js /bookmarks.html/user.js/userContent.css.... you have in /home/~/.mozilla/firefox/xxxxxx.default/ or where they are..

    - for single user:
    1. launch a konsole.. & move the package firefox-1.0.3.en-US.linux-i686.installer.tar.gz in /home/user:
    mv /where_is_ firefox-1.0.3.******.tar.gz /home/user
    2. enter /home/user :
    cd /home/user
    3. unzip the firefox-1.0.3.en-US.linux-i686.installer.tar.gz:
    tar -xzf firefox-1.0.3.en-US.linux-i686.installer.tar.gz
    4. enter the created folder firefox-installer:
    cd firefox-installer
    5. tape: ./firefox-installer
    ( don't use the firefox-installer.bin )
    6. Follow the installation.. At the finish-install, the browser will be lanched..
    7. Next time, you want to launch the browser, it's better to create a link on the desktop to /home/user/firefox-installer/firefox file (exec file)

    - for every user:
    similar way under root.. but you install in /opt or in /usr/local or in where_every_user_can_use_and_launch_firefox

    For Arabic:
    yes as sad before..
    Perso, I use LateX to create arabic pdf files:
    http://s.bouras.free.fr/latex/arabetex/tutoar.pdf
    (a small howto.... to be continued)

    Best Regards
    selimb
    p.s: .. sorry for my bad English..

    Firefox & Mandrake 10.1

    I managed to get Firefox installed. Now, I can't create a link to start it. I have to start it from a shell using ./firefox. It's installed in /Home/User/firefox-installer. How can I create a link on the desktop to open it?

    Thanks,

    My advice would be upgrade to 10.2, as this comes with firefox anyway
    Then you can select arabic to install when you upgrade.
