Firefox 1.5 help


First, thanks for the help.

I have struggled and installed Firefox 1.5, however, I can only run it from a folder icon shell script. How can I put a shortcut on the applications menu, or desktop.

I have SUSE 10.0.

If you're kind enough to answer, please do so as simply as possible!

Is it available in your kicker menu? With suse 10, you can search in the kmenu for things, check for firefox there. If it is there, you can set it anywhere, on the kicker, desktop, whereever.

if you're using KDE, you can right click on an empty spot on your desktop, and select "create new" and "link to application"

from there, it's just a matter of filling in the boxes...the first box you can name Firefox, then go to the application tab, and fill in the "command" line, which will be the actual command to fire up firefox, such as "~/firefox-installer/firefox"
(without the quotes), then click ok and it will create the icon on your desktop.

to make the icon a firefox icon, right click on the new icon you created, choose properties, and on the general tab, click on the icon box, and it will open up a selection of icons you can use.

after that you can drag the icon to an empty spot on your taskbar for a quicklaunch

I'm not sure what the kmenu is, but I'm looking for it now. Also, I have Gnome, not KDE.
