I am brand new to Linux and specifically Fedora Core5. I currently have Firefox loaded as part of the distro and wish to upgrade to the latest version. I am logged into my account (which is not root) and have downloaded the latest version from Mozilla (188.8.131.52) but cannot seem to install per the instructions on their site.
I need a newbie guide with detailed instructions on how to install. When I do the following from the terminal logged in with my account I get this:
[Eric@localhost ~]$ tar -xzvf firefox-184.108.40.206.tar.gz
tar: firefox-220.127.116.11.tar.gz: Cannot open: No such file or directory
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
tar: Child returned status 2
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors
WTF is it doing? I see it cannot open no such file or directory. The tar file is on my desktop and my pwd is Desktop.
What am I doing wrong? I am 100% sure the OS knows what it is doing but I have no clue. How do I do the install as root? I have attempted to logout of my account and tried the same process logged in as root to no avail.
Thank you GotApexer's.
