    Install Firefox in Knoppix

    I tried to download Firefox (browser) with Konqueror and it was saved into my home folder (or it is called directory).

    clicking on the downloaded file, it asked me if i want to open it with Kwrite.

    How can i install Firefox ?

    Read the sticky in hd-install forum section: http://www.knoppix.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2638

    In a nutshell:
    dselect update
    apt-get install firefox -s (remove -s for simulation if it looks ok)

    Shouldn't that be apt-get -s install firefox ?

    The other approach which in my opinion is very simple is that dont go thru the pain of installing it.
    Just download the tarred file from say for example

    http://mozilla.cs.utah.edu/pub/mozil...tk2+xft.tar.gz

    Untar it in your home directory and you can use firefox without installing it.

    I always put the -s at the end. That way if it looks ok I just hit up-arrow and BackSpc*2 to remove it and install the package.

    Running usb boot drive installed from the knoppix 6.7.1 DVD

    from a root terminal window:
    dselect update and sudo dselect update
    gives co9mmand not found

    sudo apt-get install firefox
    gives

    Package firefox is not available, but is referred to by another package
