Can anyone help me with a Mozilla extension installation?
I'm runing Mandrake 9.1 (all updated) with KDE. I unistalled 1.3 that came with the distro and installed 1.4(with help from this board) via the TAR.GZ file I downloaded. When I installed it I was root. I can click on the button in the WWW menu as a non-root user and Mozilla runs fine (it would seem).
So, I'm trying to install the MultiZilla extension, but it just aint happening. I get the "Access Denied" message when using the "Install" link on the website. Makes sense, I'm not root. I checked back with the site and they say to use xterm and su to root, run mozilla from there and install MultiZilla that way. It continues on to say that I should be able to run Mozilla, with MultiZilla, normally from that point on.
Anyway, when I call up xterm and su to root and run Mozilla from there, it just won't run. Here's what it looks like in my xterm window ...
[root@localhost rod]# mozilla
bash: mozilla: command not found
[root@localhost rod]# cd /usr/local/mozilla
[root@localhost mozilla]# mozilla
bash: mozilla: command not found
[root@localhost mozilla]# ./mozilla
after the ./mozilla entry it just does a carriage return and nothing happens. I was under the assumption that root is GOD! However, it would seem that Devine Providence doesn't extend to all corners of the cosmos.
It means that the binary file mozilla does not exist in your search path.
you could search for it using the "locate" command, but to answer you question, the best way to delete it depends on your method of install. if you used source code then go to the dir you did "make install" from and do "make uninstall"
if you installed it into a directory of it's own then just delete the directory. no fuss. though this would not be the common method of install.
if you used a package manager to install it, ala RPM then use the same package manager to uninstall it.
Thanks for your time and knowledge. Between your sharing of information and the reading by me it prompted, I've realized a little leg-work goes a LOOONNGGG way into solving problems. Thanks to your information I was prompted to look around for some other things about how I was doing this stuff. I'm not an expert yet, but I have Mozilla up and running with all the extensions I want and WHERE I want! :^) And I learned a few new things about some linux commands.
