how a "Link" works
Im testing Slax and Just downloaded Firefox ... I have already installed it but Im having problem to put it in my bin folder...

I just want firefox to be called in the command line by the "firefox" command, I tryed make a link with ln to my /usr/bin folder but Im getting an error when I run the firefox command.

If I make a [red]#ln -s ~/firefox_installer/ /usr/bin/firefox[/red] then when I try run firefox on the command line its like isnt exists...

if I make a [red]#ln ~/firefox.../ /usr/bin/firefox[/red] then when I try to run firefox on the commmand line it returns an error saying that Its not possible to localizate some Lib and files

but I can run the with no problem from the original path ... so Im thinking how can I make a link that works and that execute the file on its original directory
