Mozilla Firefox 2.0 in Kubuntu


I've been looking for information on how to install Mozilla Firefox 2.0 in Kubuntu. I tried looking for automatix to maybe help me out, but cant seem to find a good link to download it.
Any info would be appreciated

Thanks

Looks like Automatix is down right now, but here's the link.. They've been having some problems with their webpage here lately... (to my knowledge, it hasn't effected the service though, as I just used it to install an FTP client)

http://getautomatix.com/wiki/index.p...e=Installation

Only other suggestion I could make is try downloading the source from Mozilla.com

I just remembered something, just so you don't waste your time, Automatix doesn't install Firefox 2.0

If you are running Edgy, then Firefox 2 is already available in the repositories. A simple "sudo aptitude install firefox" will install Firefox for you.

If you are running Dapper, either upgrade to Edgy, or install manually from mozilla.com. Just download the tarball from Mozilla and extract it to /usr/local/firefox (requires sudo). Then:
Code:
mv /usr/bin/firefox /usr/bin/firefox1.5
ln -s /usr/local/firefox/firefox /usr/bin
I hope this helps

Sounds like you have Edgy...

Kubuntu 6.10 = Edgy Eft(this was the "nickname" for the distro while it was still in Beta)
Kubuntu 6.06 = Dapper Drake(same as above)

The next one is called Feisty Fawn, I do believe...

Odd naming, thats for sure.
