I went 'mv' and 'cd' and 'tar' as suggested.

The tab did not work for phoenix BTW. I checked and the phoenix is definitely in /home/rose/downloads which I cd'd to.

The above commands seemed to work, but 'In -s /usr/local/bin' did not.

Is that the total command?

I tried running 'phoenix' in "run command" and got "Program name or command cannot be found".

Tried './phoenix' in "run command" and got unknown host".

Thanks for helping
Rose

You typed I(eye)n in your post. Did you do that at the command line? It's l(ell)n.

as digiot points out it should be ln and not In, and to save you a possible moment of consternation, you need to do ln -s followed by the existing file, then at the end, put the name of the new link file. see man ln for more detalis.

[The tab did not work for phoenix BTW]are you using the 'bash' shell? when invoked as 'sh' i don't think it does tab completion.

if you like safari in OSX, just use the latest konqueror in linux, i do believe that all the code is being "given" back under the terms of the GPL (safari is based on khtml in the first place).

I'm a huge huge fan of galeon, so fast and simple and flexible, but the new gtk2 branch is no where near as competent as the current stable, 1.2.10. I've been looking at firebird (formerly phoenix), and it does seem to be blatantly copying a lot of galeon's good features, so I may well be moving over to firebird when galeon 1.x stops being developed....


oooh my 9000th post... i should get out more....

Thanks digiot and calum - I *think* I have phoenix going okay now.

Now to try install java

Thanks for your help.

I did get java installed to mozilla a while back but no luck with this.

Also had problems with opera crashing - why I'm trying phoenix again.

i'd go with the new firebired builds, phoenix 0.5 has a lot missing from it compared to the nightly builds on http://mozilla.org/projects/phoenix

i find the nightly binaries to be a little less stable than the "stable" versions unsurprisingly, i heard about another browser called "Beonex" by the way, it is trying to be netscape, but it is an open source browser based on mozilla. In fact i dida quick write up of some open source browsers if anybody's still interested in which one's best et c, although i did miss out dillo from the list, which i will need to include now i've remembered it.

I did go to the site and download a nightly build I thought - but it is still called phoenix though the help section is called Firebird.

Problem is I had a previous stable version downloaded and I am not sure which is being used now. I did try to uninstall that prior to downloading this though.

How can I find out which version I am using?

Calum - 'll take a look at your browser comments.

Thanks to you both,

Rose

In the browser go to Help->About . That will tell you what version you are running. Firebird was Phoenix...they just changed the name in 0.6.

Galeon is very nice but why do I have to have Mozilla installed in order to use it? I understand it works off the gecko engine but so does Firebird and you don't need Mozilla to run that.
