Question Trouble with Mozilla in Fluxbox.


I have installed mozilla from the package that's on the slackware 8.1 cd. It seams like the installation works fine, but when I run mozilla in fluxbox nothing happens... I dont even get a error message.
Could it be fluxbox that causing the error or am I missing some lib that must be installed to run mozilla?

Run from terminal and check any error message that may be helpful.

Are you certain that the package was installed properly? Try unpacking it again. I would have thought that if there was something missing, or something causing a problem, then there would be some sort of error.

Well, I have tried to install the package a couple of times with both pkgtool and installpkg and none of the programs give me any error messages.
Should I try to compile mozilla on my own?

I ran the command "mozilla -makeitwork", and got a error message that told me to install a glib-package. After installing that mozilla works!

Thx for helping me.
