Firefox installation problem on Debian 8.2.

Postby Tonto » 2018-09-03 17:27

I've just installed firefox-60.0.2.tar.bz2 in /opt/ on a new Debian installation. Running the executable directly gives the following:
Code: Select all
qtm:~># cd /opt/firefox
qtm:firefox># ls -l firefox*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 500 500 202664 Jun  6 04:28 firefox
-rwxr-xr-x 1 500 500 202736 Jun  6 04:28 firefox-bin
-rw-r--r-- 1 500 500   1449 Jun  6 04:35 firefox-bin.sig
-rw-r--r-- 1 500 500   1449 Jun  6 04:35 firefox.sig
qtm:firefox># ./firefox
bash: ./firefox: No such file or directory
qtm:firefox>#

I'm unsure what the exit message means. Could someone please enlighten me?

Are you trying to execute a 32 bit firefox on a 64 bit Jessie? Please post the output of:
Code: Select all
file /opt/firefox/firefox

and
Code: Select all
uname -a
Have a nice day!

Yes, dammit! Of course. Sorry to bother you good folks. My first 64-bit machine so I'm making stupid errors.

Thanks for your perspicacity.

Bad idea to run a browser as root, too...
The MX Linux repositories: Backports galore! If we don't have something, just ask and we'll try--we like challenges. New packages: Flightgear 2018.2.2, tlp-ui, wine-staging 3.21, Pale Moon 28.2.2, Mesa 18.2.6, Midori 7.0

If you are the only user, just extract the tarball in your /home.
