Confusion about location of Mozilla files (Mandrake Linux 10.0)

Discussion in 'Firefox' started by Hallvard Tangeraas, Sep 14, 2004.

  1. I was in the midst of the installation of the Macromedia Shockwave Flash
    plug-in for Mozilla when I was asked:

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Please enter the installation path of the Mozilla, Netscape,
    or Opera browser (i.e., /usr/lib/mozilla):
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------

    So I had a look in that directory and found the following sub-directories:

    ----------------------------------------
    mozilla/
    mozilla-1.6/
    mozilla-1.7.2/
    ----------------------------------------

    I suppose I have all of these directories because I've been unsure about
    how to install new software in Mandrake Linux, and couldn't find the
    latest version (1.7.2) in amongst the "install software" menu -only
    version 1.6 was there, so I downloaded it from Mozilla's website and
    installed it from the root desktop.
    But since I didn't get any entry in the K-menu for it and couldn't
    figure out if I had messed the Linux structure of doing things up I
    decided to remove it and install the "official" Mandrake version the
    proper way.

    So I'm running version 1.6 now, but what should I do about those folders
    I just mentioned? Remove some of them? Remove all of them, then
    reinstall Mozilla again as these might be some "left over" trash from my
    many installations?
    I have no idea what the contents of the folders do, so below is a
    listing in case someone else knows.

    ..... and how do I go about to install the Shockwave Flashplayer
    (http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave...2_Platform=Linux&P3_Browser_Version=Netscape4)
    in Mandrake Linux 10.0?
