Mozilla firefox 4 is available now for linux.Its new look and features are really great,that many non firefox users too are migrating to the new firefox.But many ubuntu users feel it tricky to install the downloaded package.So i decided to simplify their work.Ubuntu users using 10.4 (lucid lynx) and 10.10 (Maverick Meerkat)Here are two ways to install firefox through terminal and through software center.Both are easy if the following steps are followed.
Installing firefox Through terminal:
Go to Applications > Accessories > Terminal and enter the following commands carefully,
- sudo apt-add-repository ppa:mozillateam/firefox-stable
- sudo apt-get update
- sudo apt-get install firefox
Installing firefox through Software center (GUI) :
Start Ubuntu Software Center. Go to Edit > Software Sources and click the ‘Other Software’ tab. Press ‘Add’ and then add the PPA ppa:mozillateam/firefox-stable.
After that you need to update sources. So go to System > Administration > Update Manager to perform an upgrade.
