as for the `ln' command you tried from their suggestion
$ ln -s /usr/local/mozilla/mozilla /usr/bin/mozilla
$ chmod u+x /usr/bin/mozilla
, it at least needs to be reversed, according to:
Usage: ln [OPTION]... TARGET [LINK_NAME]
TARGET (/usr/bin/mozilla) needs to be first. As for other part, perhaps they meant /usr/local/bin/mozilla. Anyway just changing permissions with a link like that doesn't do it.
...Here's the simple solution (it's at the end of tchernobog's post http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi... non-root user
as mentioned above):
- You could try also to start mozilla with the "-ProfileManager" option and then create a new profile.
so I ran -
$ mozilla -ProfileManager
and selected Create profile. Didn't work at first the reason was /home/jxi/.mozilla (for userid) was root writeable only. SO as root -
# chown jxi /home/jxi/.mozilla
, created profile, now it works.
BTW I also ran the script that was provided there but still needed to do the Create Profile thing. Is this script needed?
run this in /usr/lib/mozilla-1.3.1 (or whatever is current)
export MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME LD_LIBRARY_PATH
set two environmental variables to current mozilla directory.
