Question about installing and sharing applications...


Hello,

I have installed firefox on my computer as root but I have no link to it in my menu so I need to run it from shell to get to it, it also does work if I click on the small globe next to the redhat icon but as non-root users it still loads Konqurer.

Sorry for the stupid question, I am just learning on Fedora right now and trying to migrate away from XP.

Thanks in advance and awesome forums you guys have here, long time lurker but first time poster.

Hi, and welcome to LQ!

Perfectly valid question, that one, but to answer
it we need to know what installation method you
used, what format firefox was distributed in, and
where you installed it to.


Cheers,
Tink

Right click the Globe icon, select Properties, select Execute, fill in the box. Set the value the same as in the root user's acnt.
