Multi user installs


Hey, I just downloaded firefox and I want to install it so all user accounts can access it. If I install it into /usr/local/bin will this be possible?

Btw, is that the correct area to install programs?

Thanks,
NNP

You can install it to /usr/local/firefox, then create a symlink as follows,
Code:
#ln -s /usr/local/firefox/firefox /usr/local/bin/.
Firefox will then be available for all users on your system.
