Installing Mozilla Firefox 3 in Kubuntu

First thing you need to do is check that you are able to download from Third Party Repositories.

(Take note that I am using Kubuntu 8.10 for reasons I stated in Me and the Computer)

1. Click the K button

2. Choose the Applications tab

3. Click System

4. You will find three Package Manager choices here. You will see an Add/Remove Programs, Adept, and Synaptic package managers.

For this lesson we will choose Adept.

5. In Adept click on the Sources button. It is the one with the picture of Earth.

6. Then click on Edit Sources

7. You will be presented with the Software Sources window.

8. Click on Third-Party Software tab.

9. Check all the sources listed then click the Close button.

Installing Mozilla Firefox 3

1. Back in Adept main window, click on Search.

2. Type Mozilla Firefox in the text box.

3. You will see an entry for Firefox 3.0

4. Click this then click the check box that say install this software

5. Then click Adept in the menu.

6. Choose Apply Changes

After the program finishes installing, you should now find it at:

K button > Applications tab > Internet

Hover your mouse over the Mozilla Firefox Icon then right click.

Choose Add to Favorites, so that you could easily find it next time.

(The installer for Firefox 3.5.1 is also available for Linux. But we will have to do it manually. Unfortunately, I'm too lazy to do that at the moment. Hehe.
Maybe in a future lesson.)
