how does it come??? this error


i'm trying to install flash and they asked me to give the path of my webbrowser :

[killah@localhost killah]$ cd /usr/bin/
[killah@localhost bin]$ ./mozilla

/usr/bin/ so

but look ::

Please enter the installation path of the Mozilla, Netscape,
or Opera browser (i.e., /usr/lib/mozilla): /usr/bin/

WARNING: Please enter a valid installation path.

Please enter the installation path of the Mozilla, Netscape,
or Opera browser (i.e., /usr/lib/mozilla): /usr/bin/mozilla

WARNING: /usr/bin/mozilla is not a directory.

Please enter the installation path of the Mozilla, Netscape,
or Opera browser (i.e., /usr/lib/mozilla):

How does it come??

try looking in /usr/bin - there is a folder called mozilla, which doesn't have your browser. The folder will be called mozilla-1.2 or -1.3, etc that is what needs to be typed in.

Confusing, I know But simply follow the example given, on nearly every system I've used /usr/lib/mozilla is indeed the directory for the web browser 'plugins' which is what it's actually asking for

Cool

/usr/bin/mozilla is the mozilla executable, such should be the case with nearly every file in /usr/bin as that's the intention of that directory.

By far:
www.mplayerhq.hu

However, read threads around this site to find out the best way to setup Mplayer, there is the standard, which works great, however, there is compiling it to fit your system perfectly, and including the codecs to decode nearly everything media related on PC's today.

The skin extracted to that location needs to be termed "Default". So, you have a few options, symlink or move.

mv /usr/local/share/mplayer/Skin/Skin-Name /usr/local/share/mplayer/Skin/default

Where "Skin-Name" is the name of ths skin you have chosen. Be sure to also have the font installed to /usr/local/share/mplayer/font

HTH

Cool
