OpenSUSE Install :: Older Version Of Mozilla Firefox Internet Browser / Ati Drivers / Sound Drivers
May 9, 2011
after few years being limited with my pc configuration (windows OS) I realized that linux or it's distributions is the best invention in 21 century. And finally I am starting use it. openSUSE 11.4 installaition succesful, I updated it and it looks I don;t have any problems, but I got few questions.
1. How install older version of mozilla firefox internet browser here? I can't install some plugins because it's a firefox beta 12 version, for example. I am quake fan, o I like play quake live, but i can't install quake plugin, because my firefox is beta version.
2. Does I got all drivers instantly installed to my mashine? ATI video drivers, sound drivers ect??
3. Are there any How-To guides which can teach me, how I can improve my desktop? gadgets, 3D desktop ect...?
I have a new dell inspiron 1545 since i am facing problems with vista i wanted to work with linux operating system (fedora 9). I want to install the video drivers and sound drivers for my laptop..When i installed fedora 9 my screen resolution was 1366x768 but suddenly now my resolution is 1024x768. I tried to change the resolution but I am unable to find my laptop resolution. What could be the problem
Here I can see my video card and sound card.. I want to install the drivers for my cards
first of all I need to know how to install Mozilla Firefox from the browser. It should be easy, but it has this weird tar.bz thing. Why can't Mozilla be normal? It is extremely hard to get the latest builds. I don't even know what I had to wrestle through to get to 4.0.1, which is what I am on now. Tell me the super easy way. Mozilla is awful. Also, how can I get the new beta and aurora channel switcher? I believe I can only get it if I update to a newer version which is what I am trying to do now. It says to go to about and then click "change" which is not there. So Linux really shouldn't be this complicated and frustrating.
i have a little experience with ubuntu but i have had bugs that are not resolvable at this time in ubuntu. so instead of giving wild bill back my pc i am looking for a new distro. my concerns with ubuntu revolve around acpi. no fan control and high temp. the 2nd problem that is almost overlookable is the ata1 softreset error. it usually is no problem but occasionally have to do manual fsck to fix. so heres my laptop specs. toshiba a305d-s6848. amd turion x2 ati x1250 integrated. 3gb ram. 500gb hd vista and ubuntu 9.04 dual boot grub with 100gb ubuntu and the rest vista. so q1= what suse version would be best?
q2= is suse's acpi better? ubuntu runs all features but fan control q3= is suse as easy to install? or harder q4= ati graphics i know for my card went to legacy what version still has the ati drivers for my card q5= is suse easier or harder to work with and get everything working.
i know no linux is or opsys is perfect. im just looking for one that is stable and works the pc correctly. i know its a big thing to ask. i know no one can tell me that. but just looking for suggestions. im thinking of downloading suse and does all the downloads support live sessions.
The drivers from rpmfusion are the 256.xx version drivers. Unfortunately I have two games from LGP - X2 "the treat" and X3 "Reunion", and those games have BIG problems with the newer 256 drivers.So - I am forced to install the "older" 195.xx range drivers (the last ones that behaved good). The problem is - I cannot use rpmfusion for that -they have only the latest drivers and no older ones-, so I amd forced to download the drivers and install everything by hand.
At first I tought "no problem". I have done that before with other distro's like Mandriva, openSUE, PCLinuxOS etc. and never had any trouble. It was just a case of installing the kernel headers, developmenpackages, compile the driver and tweak the xorg.conf file.After a restart everything works as I wanted.With Fedora 13 however it seems not to go that easy. The first try resulted in a lock-up - even to a point I could not use Ctrl+Alt+F"x" to switch to a terminal. By the way - I "disabled" the nouveau driver in the grub startup configuration, but that also did not helped one bit. This is weird, as compiling did not give any error and I have to assume that part was going ok. I really have no idea what is going wrong here.
[URL] I just updated and then saw this news , whats the solution for me, I either want to go beta or downgrade, If i try to boot to previous kernel, boot hangs in graphic mode, I cant start X and gdm . How to install kmod with beta drivers? Or whats the solution, nvidia ver: 195.36.08
I know i know, some will say "eww Proprietary Drivers" but hey, ubunt is all about having more control of the OS. Is there an easy way to install Proprietary Drivers thats not through the hardware drivers option on system?
a few months ago, I installed Ubuntu Studio 10.4 x64 edition on my computer, and I was able to invert the colors in Firefox by pressing "Windows-Key + M".Since I updated to the latest Ubuntu Studio release, 11.x, via the upgrade function, this inverting of colors does not work any more. How can I do it now ? PS: I'm using Firefox 4.0.1 right now - maybe I was using Firefox 3.6 (I don't recall it exactly) under Ubuntu 10.4 and hence it's got something to do with the browser rather than the OS ?
I'm operating on a new Linux computer and I'm not too savy when it comes to computer terminology. Please bare with me. I am trying to change my browser from Mozilla firefox to seamonkey. Im pretty sure I downloaded it but cant find it anywhere on the computer. My reason for changing to seamonkey is I play a game called yoville and I cant get in on this computer it just stops at 75% activating player. I have adobe 10 and thinking maybe I need to switch to adobe 9 but dont know how to do this either.
For me, Ubuntu 11.04 can only use "software rasterizer" with Open GL. I think this is possibly because I have to disable kernel mode-setting on my PC and the new drivers with 11.04 need KMS to work. Though that's just my guess. In Ubuntu 10.04 hardware accelerated OpenGL works fine with KMS off. So does anybody know how I can use those older drivers in 11.04? OR Does anybody know how to make Ubuntu 11.04's drivers work with KMS disabled?
The actual nvidia driver version (260.1912) does not work for my laptop (a Sony Vaio F11 series type, see bottom of page [URL]), I would like to install an older version (e.g. 256.53). Up to now, I cannot figure out how to tell yum to pick up an older version. Is there a way to do this (because kmod-nvidia is a meta package, there may be problems?), or do I have to install 256.53 manually (using the installer provided by nvidia)?
I have installed Xampp on Fedora 11. After that I have gone to Mozilla Firefox Browser and wrote [URL].. on the address bar but it is not supporting Xampp, when I opened Konqueror Browser and wrote [URL].. on the address bar it is supporting Xampp and showing everything of Xampp. Now, is there any way to make Mozilla Firefox Browser work for Xampp?
I was trying to reinstall vista on my laptop and 7 in my desktop a few days ago, and I kid you not, both failed on installation. Being already annoyed as I just reinstalled at the start of this college semester, I popped in my roommates disc and here I am! Though I'm having a bit of trouble =) I have no sound!
Maybe sounds silly but I couldn't find on the web how to install my motherboard sound driver on Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic. I can't use my microphone and Linux can't identify my soundMAX sound card, but I have sound.
The only problem I've encountered so far is with my soundcard - a Soundblaster Audigy (basic version). I'm dual booting with XP and followed the exact same procedure as with 11.1. Used GParted to shrink the Windows partition (and yes, I did defragment beforehand) First there was no sound with Opensuse, which didn't really bother me too much as I assumed I needed to d/l some drivers, so fine. I restarted and booted into Windows and find that I have no sound in any applications, yet they appear to be playing, mp3, waves etc and no problems indicated by windows or other programs, in effect the card is fine but not outputting. Reinstalled drivers - no success. Uninstalled the soundcard from Device Manager, didn't work either. In the end I had to physically remove the card,
reboot into windows, then shutdown, insert the card again, then install the drivers. This fixed the problem, but anytime I boot into Opensuse, the same problem occurs, very strange. I'm thinking there may have been a problem during the partitioning stage, maybe some stubborn little windows file didn't want to move during defrag' and got lost. That's the only idea I have at the moment. Tried to remove the Grub Bootloader with 'fixmbr' command, but it still loads.
I seem to be missing drivers for my Gateway laptop MA7. I have looked in System->Admin->Hardware Drivers, but it does not show up in there.There are also no devices listed in Sound->Hardware. I'm guessing at this point that I don't have the driver installed.
I have a wireless card that needs the Broadcom B4311 Rev. 1 driver but I don't have a way to download that driver since I don't have wireless access since the driver isn't installed. I'm running Linux Mint Debian x64.
I bought new laptop (VOSTRO 1015) with defalut ubuntu 8.1 linux OS. i need to instal latest ubuntu version, is it possible to override old version with new version if i can over ride old version is there any problems with my laptop.When i palyed MP3 and Videos in movie player one pop message was displayed codec are not available , ubuntu version is out dated.i need to instal latest ubuntu with audio and video drivers
I just upgraded to 10.04, and am quite happy with it so far, but it installed Firefox 3.6, which is a problem for me because I need to be able to use the Jssh plugin, which isn't available for 3.6 yet. All I need to do is downgrade Firefox to 3.5, but I seem to be having some issues, it seems that there is only the one version available to me in Synaptic. Is there another repository that I need to add to have access to an older version?

I installed Ubuntu 10.04. Prior to this I had been using Ubuntu 9.10. In 10.04 I am just unable to connect to the net using Mozilla FireFox. But otherwise, Update Manager, Google Chromium are all connecting smoothly. Which implies that there is nothing wrong with my internet connection. So now that this is a Mozilla FireFox problem.
I have used Linux off and on over the years and had to go back to windows because of a problem I could not solve. That is no longer true and I have been using Linux (Ubuntu) for the last year or so and I consider it superior to other OS'S and a BIG thanks to all who contribute to make it so great and free. My question is that on some versions of Ubuntu some hardware might work fine(or an package for that matter)and in the next version it might not work. Are new drivers required for every new version? Do all driver work for all versions of Linux using the same kernel?
I need to install the latest drivers for my Nvidia card. I have the Quadro FX 1800.I don't think the Nvidia One click installation will work with this card.I downloaded the drivers from Nvidia and tried to install them but their directions are very confusing. It says "exit x windows" and "restart in init 3". I don't know what that means.Can someone tell me step-by-step how to compile and install the nvidia drivers?I have opensuse 11.2 64-bit clean install with all the defaults, and the Quadro FX 1800.
