Hello,

I already download Firefox 3, then, when I run that software, it stated that i have to install gtk2.12 or more but I already have gtk 2.8. Never mind, I just overcome that situation by using the following guide.
http://www.yolinux.com/TUTORIALS/GTK+Pr ... gTips.html

I already settled the dependencies problem but the following are the problems that I encountered,
1. I create an Icon for this Firefox but it is still referring to the same error, 'you have to install gtk2.12'.
2. I can ONLY run the command './firefox' in the same terminal after I put these three commands.
# export PATH=/opt/bin:$PATH
# export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
# export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/opt/lib/pkgconfig:/usr/lib/pkgconfig
3. If I open new terminal, it wont works also. It works when I enter the three commands above.

I try to put these commands into .bashrc but it also didn't works.
May someone help me to solve this? Where should I edit? How should my firefox read this path?

Thanks..

I think the problem is that desktop icons launch the program directly, not through the shell. Until someone else can come up with a better solution, here's a quick fix that might work: change the icon's target to "sh firefox" so that it loads through the shell - that way it should load .bashrc before opening Firefox.
