starting mozilla 1.5


I just installed mozilla 1.5. I am able to run it by changeing to the directory where I installed it, /usr/local/mozilla. Then I type this in ./mozilla-bin.

I would like to use the mozilla icon that I have in my task bar(currently linked to moz1.4) in kde. I clicked on properties of the icon and change the command to /usr/local/mozilla/mozilla-bin. It trys to start it but does not ever get it going. What am I doing wrong

Try /usr/local/mozilla/./mozilla-bin as the command...?

If you have an executable 'mozilla' file in the same directory as mozilla-bin, try pointing your shortcut at that (it's a sort of wrapper/initialization script). I'm not sure why mozilla works when run as mozilla-bin at all, but skipping it may be why it doesn't work in some circumstances. And if that doesn't work, you may want to uninstall 1.4 if you have 1.5 - should uninstall 1.4 first and then install 1.5, I think. I have 1.3 and 1.5 on my box, but one is in my home directory and one's system-wide. Seems like there can be issues if you essentially install one on top of the other.

"seems like there can be issues if you essentially install one on top of the other"

they are installed in two different places. Mozilla 1.4 is at /usr/lib/mozilla-1.4. Mozilla 1.5 is at /usr/local/mozilla. If they are in two differnt locations could that still cause problems"?

I put this in the command instead" /usr/local/mozilla/mozilla" it is starting it, but strangely. It starts mozilla, but then tries to start it a second time. The second starting fails, but the first is still running. It now is more of an inconvienece.
