Installation routes


Hi everyone.

I installed Mozilla Firefox 0.9.3 on my Fedora Core 2 using # rpm -hiv firefox.rpm

It works perfect, but I need to know the installation directory of Firefox cuz I have to run this command to make it available in my language:

MozillaFirefox -UILocale sl-SI -contentLocale SI

You can see more details in: http://www.mozilla.org/projects/l10n...otes/ff08.html

Where is Firefox installed? what folder? is there a default directory to install all my rpms?

C ya!

most probably it has been installed in /usr/local

but you could do this to locate it

# locate firefox

and then put a launcher in your panel or desktop for convenience.

try
#updatedb

this will take a little time and then

# locate firefox
or
# whereis firefox

or open up nautilus (file manager) and look out for firefox directory in /usr/local

Inside /usr/local just:
/bin, /etc, /games, /nclude, /lib, /libexec, /sbin, /share, /src.

But... I used updatedb, and locate firefox... and FIREFOX IS INSTALLED ON user/lib.

Thankz tuxrules !!!
