I'd suggest that the firefox binary is not found in the PATH, and you
are not giving the full path name for the executable.
Hello, first e-mail:
Trying to get Firefox 1.5 and Frostwire on to my Kubuntu 5.10 install.
Firefox comes in a tar.gz, Frostwire in a .deb package.
I un-tar Firefox, and it apparently should run straight out of the
folder, but nothing in there will run. Permissions on everything says
it's owned by me (not root) with read and write, and Is Executable.
There's no installers that i can see in the folder. Got it straight
from getfirefox.com because Adept only has firefox 1.0.7. I had
mandrake 9.2 on and did the same thing, ran firefox fine.
Try running it from konsole with the full path name include, something
Downloaded it from frostwire.com with the Debian/Ubuntu link, I
right-click on the .deb and go to "Kubuntu Package Manager" ->
"Install Package". Does it's thing. Frostwire is now in my K Menu, but
when I go to open it, it loads for a bit, then nothing. Disappears.
Permissions on anything to do with Frostwire (with a search) is owned
by root, owner can read and write, I can only read and is executable.
(I don't know how to log is as root to adjust these permissions, can't
do it when logging in and I'm having trouble logging in from a
terminal << I don't know if that can help...)
Try running it from konsole, and see if it is generating any error (Seg
Fault, missing libs, etc).
