Firefox not installing;libgtk missing;"Storm" Linux




I am trying to install Mozilla Firefox;
I have extracted the download file, which I renamed firefox.tar.gz,
into a folder:file:/root/firefox-installer/
It contains 7 files & 1 folder:
xpi/
config.ini
firefox-installer
firefox-installer-bin
header.png
install.ini
license.txt
watermark.png

The problem is similar to another question under the ubuntu directory of this BB but I couldn't find anything there that could help me.

I dragged firefox-installer-bin into the terminal and pressed enter to run it, and I get
"/root/firefox-installer/firefox-installer-bin: error in loading shared libraries
libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"

I am running "Storm" Linux
I am also using the KDE.
Please help. Thank you.

It would be very nice if you posted a link to the thread, or at least the title.

And LQ is not a BB, it's a forum

I take this to be the name of your distro.

If you want to save yourself the trouble of typing that every time, go to `My LQ' -> `Edit profile' -> `distro' and type in the name.

Which file? from where?

I assume it's from the mozilla site.

I don't know storm linux, but if it does provide some kind of package repository, I recommend you download & install programs from that.

Now, dealing with your problem: you need to install a gtk library--so much is obvious. If your distro provides a file-name -> package-name lookup mechanism (apt-file for debian), use that. Other than that, I'm not sure enough to be of help (sorry).
