Unhappy Help with permissions :(


Hello guys,

I have removed the Mozilla embedded in the Mandrake 8.0 and installed the newest one. But no one is able to start it except the root. I think it's a problem of privileges.

As am new on linux I really need help

Check using Konquerer what the permissions are for the file /usr/bin/mozilla

I think that this is the files which loads it up.

Also, check the folder wherever you installed it, making sure that ppl other than root can access mozilla.

Unhappy It doesn't work

I checked the permissions on the user/bin/mozilla and the permissions are the same as anyother program. whenever I try starting it from konsol under KDE I get the error:
/usr/bin/mozilla: line 156: 1001 Segmentation fault $MOZ_PROGRAM -remote "openurl (about:blank,new-window)" 2>/dev/null >/dev/null
Error sending command.

But if i try launching it in the same way after suing root it works perfectly.

Can you please give me some feedback???
thanks a lot I'd really appreciate any help I can get.

's cheers

what are the permissions on it?

you can try to chmod 777 /usr/bin/mozilla
and that will un doubtfully give everyone and anyone access to the file.

if that doesn't work, we know then its not a permission problem.
