how to install firefox 3.6, and thunderbird email [Solved]

Postby johnlvs2run » Mon May 09, 2011 1:44

I have searched the forum and wiki and did not find instructions to install any programs.

Is it better to use portable or entropy? The wiki gives a lot of portage commands.
I am therefore loath to try various commands in case they are not the right ones.

I did try "# equo install firefox" but that did not work.

It would be appreciated if someone could post the proper commands.

Thanks very much.

Have you tried using the GUI package sulfur, it is very easy to use
Desktop ASUS M2N-MX SE Plus, AMD 64 X2 Dual Core 5200, 4 Gb RAM, GeForce 9500 1GB
Notebook HP CQ61-311AX, AMD CPU M320, 4 Gb RAM, Radeon HD 4300 512 MB

I have not tried it, and don't see it listed on LXDE.

The terminal usually works fine, as long as I know which commands to use.

According to ftp://na.mirror.garr.it/mirrors/sabayon ... so.pkglist app-admin/equo-1.0_alpha26 is in that iso image

How did you install Sabayon?
After you install Sabayon
Did you remove some packages?

I recommend that you a look at
http://wiki.sabayon.org/index.php?title=En:Entropy
and
http://wiki.sabayon.org/index.php?title ... ge_Manager

I installed lxde from iso image, to dvd, to computer,
and have not removed anything. The last attempt was on fedora by mistake.

Now I'm installing firefox 3.6. Whew, firefox takes 1GB of space!

There sure is a lot involved in just adding one program.
