Unable to install firefox as a guest for linux on local directory

Veröffentlicht

I want to install firefox on centos for Linux. But it requires root password, wget or yum. So is there any way to install it on a local directory? Please let me know.

I do not use CentOS either.

Are you saying on CentOS guest account you can not use wget ? No need to use that as presuming you are posting from the problem machine then the Fx17 you are using will download the Firefox installer. The files then need unarchiving.

Is this a company or someone else’s computer system ? If so you may need to consult your IT department for advice.

Hi

I do not know CentOS, but I have recently hopped from Ubuntu to TealinuxOS and had to reinstalled a Mozilla build of Nightly so I have an understanding of what you are trying to do.

Mainly through lack of Linux knowledge, i have not tried to fully install Firefox (nightly), but run the Firefox-bin file from the tar.bz2 (extracted to Home) as an executable with a shortcut to the toolbar.

It is a little clunky (and I am sure there are better ways to do it), but it works fine for me.

IF $USER is in wheel you can do the following:

this assumes /usr/local/bin as $destdir and downloading into ~/$USER/Downloads/

cd ~/Downloads ; wget https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/nightly/latest-mozilla-aurora/firefox-54.0a2.en-US.linux-x86_64.tar.bz2 ; tar xvf firefox-54.0a2.en-US.linux-x86_64.tar.bz2 ; cd firefox ; sudo yum builddep firefox ; ./firefox & ; OR /usr/local/bin/firefox &u

if you wish to have just the default firefox on CentOS and your user is in wheel:


sudo yum install firefox --installroot=/usr/local/bin ( or whatever localdir you desire.

IF $USER is in wheel you can do the following: this assumes /usr/local/bin as $destdir and downloading into ~/$USER/Downloads/ cd ~/Downloads ; wget https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/nightly/latest-mozilla-aurora/firefox-54.0a2.en-US.linux-x86_64.tar.bz2 ; tar xvf firefox-54.0a2.en-US.linux-x86_64.tar.bz2 ; cd firefox ; sudo yum builddep firefox ; ./firefox & ; OR /usr/local/bin/firefox &u if you wish to have just the default firefox on CentOS and your user is in wheel: sudo yum install firefox --installroot=/usr/local/bin ( or whatever localdir you desire.

You posted with Firefox 17.0.

Does your Linux distribution support current Firefox releases?

Verify that you meet the System Requirements (GTK+ and GLib) for the current Firefox release.
