add Firefox to menu


Basic Slackware 10.1 installation using KDE.

Installed Firefox and can run it by clicking on firefox in the firefox-installed directory. How can I add this to the menu or create a shortcut on the desktop.

Also, I downloaded Thunderbird, but I do not see an installer, like Firefox. What is the procedure to install.

Thanks

What about using a Slackware package http://www.linuxpackages.net/pkg_details.php?id=5827 ?

Or if you are using KDE - right click on the desktop, select Create New and then Link to Application.

Thanks,

I used the link to application, and put an icon on the desktop. Any advice on installing Thunderbird

If you're using the official build from Mozilla.org, just extract the tarball into /usr/lib/thunderbird, and, optionally, create a symbolic link to /usr/lib/thunderbird/thunderbird in /usr/bin .

Alternatively, use a package, which should do everything for you.

if you'd like to add the shortcuts to firefox and thunderbird to your kmenu, an easy way is to: right-click on your taskbar, configure, then open the menus tab (I think), and then "edit kmenu".
