- How to install Flash player on Ubuntu? 5 answers
The firefox on my ubuntu requires me to update Flash plugin and follow the link I get to the page which ask me to download the latest Firefox package. I download the tar.gz and unzip it. It is the new version, but it is in an independent folder and if I want to use it, I need to open the folder and click on the Firefox executable.
How can I replace the old version of firefox on my ubuntu with the newly-downloaded?
I checked the old version:
nanger@mypad:/usr/lib/firefox$ which firefox /usr/bin/firefox nanger@mypad:/usr/bin$ whereis firefox firefox: /usr/bin/firefox /etc/firefox /usr/lib/firefox /usr/bin/X11/firefox /usr/share/man/man1/firefox.1.gz
I'm not very familiar with linux system. But what is /usr/bin/firefox? is it a symbolic link which link to the Firefox executable in /usr/lib/firefox? how can I replace it with the new version?
