Question Newbie's first trouble?


Hello Everybody.!
I'm New here.
Fresh, very fresh. Just installed Slackware 10. but Galeon doesn't respond, giving the following message:
Galeon failed to start
Ensure the "MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME" environment variable is set to the correct Mozilla installation directory

Help?!

Did you install Mozilla?

IIRC Galeon is dependent on Mozilla.

just go to the link provided above, and click " Download /HTTP /FTP " on the right.
download the package into your home-dir.

then open a console; type " su "; fill-in root-password.
goto your home-dir ( where the package is )
type #installpkg <name-of-package>

that's all.

O.K. Here we go.
I had such thing before and I'm Gnome user.
I know what you did so don't tell me no, because I did the same thing some years ago
and I was in that predicament too
You used GALEON after full install. There is nothing wrong about that, however, you should not have used it as root before creating regular user.
Tell me, have you created regular user yet? If not then DO NOT yet.

Do not create yet!
follow this presicely:
#su
Password
#root@root#removepkg galeon gaim
$$$$$
#mount -t iso9660 /dev/"your cdrom device" /mnt/cdrom
Find packages galeon and gaim and then
#installpkg galeon gaim
#cd..
#root@root#updatedb

Soon after you've done that
#adduser
type username
In additional groups type: cdrom,video,audio.wheel
and follow on-screen instructions

#reboot
