Question Greetings from New Zealand.....Mepis....How does one install Firefox......


Hi there form sunny Golden Bay, New Zealand.....I have Mepis running on 4 computers at home and provide an email cafe' type situation for holiday makers.....Mepis is great but unlike Xandros which has a way of seeing what software is available for it and installs , Mepis doesn't seem to have this.....So my guestion is ....How do you install the likes of Firefox onto a Mepis distro???? I am assuming it uses .dep files rather than .rpm or archived files.....Thank you if someone can point me to the right place that would be awesome......Mike

FF is installed by default. It is the dark blue globe in the task bar. The light blue globe with the light bulb next to it is Konquerer.

Thanks for your reply .....I know FF is in the latest copies 3.3.1 and 3.-2 rcl but I have an earlier copy and as they are working alright I don't like to fiddle with them, but FF works better than Mozilla and Konguerer as a web-broaser, so I thought to install it but I can't seem to find the way to do this......I use to use Xandros which had a thing called Xandros Network which would check on the net for up to date software and then install the things I want .....Does Mepis have something similar? Again than you for your reply .....Cheers...Mike
