Installing Mozilla Firefox on Kubuntu 7.04

Konqueror, Kubuntu's default web browser is great but Mozilla Firefox is one of the two most popular browsers out there.

But you have probably discovered that you can't just install it on a freshly created Kubuntu desktop.

For me doing a full system upgrade before installing Mozilla Firefox solved this problem.

To do this:

1. Open the Adept Manager by clicking K>System>Adept Manager
2. Type in the administrator password
3. Choose Full Upgrade in the Adept Manager

After Kubuntu has finished upgrading you can then proceed to install Firefox.

Note: if you are an advanced user, you could instead manually select which part of Kubuntu to upgrade with regards to installing Firefox without errors rather than upgrading everything.

Update: Installing Mozilla Firefox 3.0 in Kubuntu

*I cannot apply changes when I try to install firefox from adept since it (apply changes button)is grayed out.


You will not be able to change your system settings in any way (install, remove or upgrade software) because another process is using the packaging system database (probably some other Adept application, apt-get or aptitude). Please close the other application before using this one.
