Firefox 1.5 installation problems on Man2006
Hey everyone, I'm new to linux as well as mandriva, but I'm trying to figure out how to update some of my programs, specifically to Firefox 1.5.
Before beginning, let me explain my system- Mandriva 2006 running on KDE 3.4 (which I'm also stumped on how to update).
I have downloaded the tar.gz file and extracted it into /usr/local/bin/firefox. This is where the problem begins- from what many tutorials/explanations have told me, this is pretty much the end of installation. I have even created a shortcut with the icon- however, when I try to open "firefox" or any of the other files, nothing happens. I have tried double-clicking it in konqueror, typing "firefox" as a run command, and even tried figuring out the konsole- but nothing happens. When I use the menudrake link, a firefox icon appears next to my mouse cursor (as well as my program panel, but it disappears. If anyone has a solution to this problem, please help! One last thing- my old firefox continues to work just as it always did.
