Question Greetings from New Zealand.....


Hi there form sunny Golden Bay, New Zealand.....I have Mepis running on 4 computers at home and provide an email cafe' type situation for holiday makers.....Mepis is great but unlike Xandros which has a way of seeing what software is available for it and installs , Mepis doesn't seem to have this.....So my guestion is ....How do you install the likes of Firefox onto a Mepis distro???? I am assuming it uses .dep files rather than .rpm or archived files.....Thank you if someone can point me to the right place that would be awesome......Mike

Welcome to LQ!

This forum is only for introducing yourself.

You should post this question in the Mepis forum,
where Mepis users can help you answer it.

Thumbs up Thank you

Thank you for your reply....And I also agree with your Quote, I lived in a Bible Schol in NZ where David Ravenhill was teaching and got to know him quite well (I think) and if the son is like the father then he was a good man.....Blesings..Mike

The father was an awesome man of God! I also know David, and as you said, so is he. Had some email with him recently, and will probably call and talk with him before heading back to China.

I got a buddy in NZ around Wellington. Seems there's some good Christians, and Linuxers both, in NZ.

Sorry I can't help you with Mepis ... I'm just a Slacker.

This forum is for introductions. It means that the technical discussion should move to: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...d.php?t=402240

I'm also changing the title to reflect the change.
