How do I get the Iron Browser installed in Debian?


I would rather use the Iron browser rather than Google chromium or Chrome. I don't know how to open a tar.gz file for Debian....Is there a way to get this browser working in LMDE?

Thanks...

extract the .tar.gz file somewhere

use the terminal to go to the folder you just created

Code:
sudo bash
./configure
make
make install
should do the trick

What? Following the posted method? AFAIK SRWare Iron is not distributed as source but as binary and the installation procedure is simply tar -zxvf iron-linux<whatever>.tar.gz and then run the resulting iron binary. Needs libgconf-2.so.4.

.deb

SRWare now offers a .deb download, as well.
I installed it yesterday (using iron now, as iceweasel 14 is flaking out).

In this case, just download the .deb
cd /diretory/with/iron64.deb # ok, I am on AMD 64. There is a 32bit deb, as well
sudo dpkg -i iron64.deb

Works nicely, but is constantly asking to update the flash plugin (and redirects you to adobe's site to download the same version I already have running...)
