Installing and Configuring Plug-ins for Mozilla Firebird on Fedora Core

Saturday January 31st, 2004

mariuz sent us a link to a FedoraNEWS.ORG article that describes how to install and set up plug-ins for use with Mozilla Firebird on the Fedora Core Linux distribution. The tutorial covers using apt to install Adobe Acrobat Reader, Java and Macromedia Flash Player and describes how to configure Firebird to use them. Next week, FedoraNEWS.ORG will publish an article detailing the manual installation of these plug-ins.

Sure. I'm just saying that I don't think it's Firebird's job to do more than say "I'm here".

AFAIK (I should point out I don't actually use Linux currently), Linux doesn't have a registry or anything like it - stuff like that differs between Linux distros and desktop environments. Installation of plugins into any browser requires the user to do some work - making links or copying files. You can't compare Windows plugins to Linux plugins...
