Ubuntu Installation :: Remove Namoroka And Reinstall Firefox?
Oct 7, 2010
How can I remove Namoroka (3.6.12pre) and reinstall firefox? I already tried the sudo apt-get purge firefox-3.6 but to no avail.
Can anybody tell me what the ppa packages just are? Is it correct that they are Ubuntu specific packages for optimizing applications for Ubuntu?
I have problem running Firefox 3.6.5pre called Namoroka
In Ubuntu Lucid 10.04 I have installed F/f 3.5 and 3.6,showing in Synaptic and also 3.6.5pre which does not appear in the synaptic list as it was installed direct from Mozilla. If I try to run 3.5 or 3.6 Namoroka still grabs the command.
I would like to revert to the recognised/updated version of 3.6 (already installed)and completely remove all redundant packages. Mozilla only suggests removing the profile but I need that when the recognised version is allowed to run.
I have upgraded my system browser to Namoroka (Namoroka/3.6.2pre) from firefox (3.0).
But it is creating many problem on my browsers. Like i am not able to open new orkut just because they support only firefox and also i am not able to watch facebook videos (It always says certain video is unavailable but at the same point of time it is available in other browsers).
Also do tell me can i remove this browser from my system and install original firefox , what changes do i need to do on my system.Currently i am using Ubuntu 9.10 .
I just installed an update through update manager that upgrade my Firefox 3.6 to 3.6.2pre which is a beta release. I didnt realize I was doing this. There are some things that I don't like about this beta version, so I want to roll back.How do I do that the right way?'d really like to retain my shortcuts, extensions, etc so I'm not to keen on a uninstall/reinstall.
I ran the update manager a few weeks ago and for whatever reason, it downgraded me from Firefox 3.6 to Namoroka (Firefox 3.6 beta release from what I understand). Having had Namoroka before, and knowing how unstable it was, I immediately removed it and reinstalled Firefox 3.5 from Linuxappfinder.com. Upon this last update, Ubuntu again downgraded me from Firefox 3.5 to Namoroka. I am worried about updating my other computer because of this problem.
Firefox 3.6 "Namoroka" stopped working after a recent update. Clicking on my panel launcher or the launcher in the applications menu does nothing. I even tried starting Firefox from the terminal and got an error message: "(firefox-bin:3592): GLib-WARNING **: g_set_prgname() called multiple times", whatever that means.I would be willing to rip out Firefox and start all over again but I don't know how to remove the 3.6 version. I couldn't find a method in the Software Center for doing that graphically.
whenever i go to videos and click on a video, namoroka just freezes or hangs (it will become a little dark grayish in color). i will wait for some time for it to become normal but, no matter how long i wait, it is just like that. what is wrong with namoroka?
Thus far I have had no luck. I have installed Namoroka from the ppa repo and got flash working nicely but java is another matter. I followed instructions to install the jre manually but no matter what I do it will not display in FF's "aboutlugins". I have to ask if Namoroka is using the default folder: /home/username/.mozilla/plugins/? Because that is where I created the symlink to the java plugin.
I installed Firefox 4.0 beta on Ubuntu and it made Firefox into Namoroka. Now I want to revert back to the stable Firefox but I am unable to do it. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling but none of this works.
Ever since I upgraded to Namoroka a few months ago I can't view video from ....., flash videos, java etc... I always keep my machine updated with the update mgr, did some plugin updates but stil no videos. I'm getting tired of copying and pasting url's into epiphany each time I want to see a video. I'm running Namoroka ver. 3.6.5pre mozilla Firefox for Ubuntu canonical - 1.0 on Karmic.
Since yesterday firefox (Namoroka) has been constantly freezing; prior to yesterday it worked perfectly. I've tried un-installing and re-installing, but that didn't fix it. I even tried un-installing Namoroka and installing firefox 3.5 (via apt-get install firefox-3.5), but somehow I continue to get firefox 3.6 (aka Namoroka). Anyone know how to resolve my Namoroka issues or how to install the seemingly more stable 3.5 version? I don't know if this makes a difference, but I originally had installed ubuntu and then installed kde (kubuntu-desktop) desktop on top of it. And yes, I've checked my sources.list to make sure mozilla-daily repository is not listed.
I installed flashplugin-installer in my ubuntu netbook remix, i found out that it couldnt play net videos. I have tried to purge it inorder to install adobe flash player but it is not going away. this is the message i get:-
I had Kubuntu 9.04 and Windows XP on a Dual Boot. I upgraded using the update manager to 9.10. (I know, I'm a fool.) The Kubuntu install stated freezing hard on startup, just after the GRUB OS selection screen, at a blinking cursor and otherwise blank screen. I'm pretty sure 9.10 will work great from a fresh install, but the live cd freezes after main Kubuntu boot screen and even Windows live cd only shows Windows partition. fixmb, fixboot, bootcfg etc. do NOT replace the grub as desired.
i installed the new ubuntu on my system as a side by side installation, i've been using it for about 2 weeks now. ported over or found linux equivalents of any applications and games i use onto my ubuntu partition, and now i've decided i want to have ubuntu use the entire drive and just delete windows! The problem is, i'm not sure if i can do that I shrank my windows partition half a gig and booted lupu (the ubuntu partitioner wasn't even showing this half a gig of free space) to see if i could just extend my linux partition (in the case that this did work, i was just planning on deleting my windows partition and just extending my linux to the full size of my drive). I really want to avoid a full reformat of the drive because i have customized my ubuntu a decent bit and i don't want to have to redo all of that (not to mention the data, but i could always back that up on an external hdd). Here is a screenie of gparted: i don't really know too much about partitioning. so is there any way to remove windows and give linux the rest of the drive without having to completely reinstall ubuntu?
Recently I have installed Fedora 10. It comes with firefox 3.xx by default. Now I was wondering if there is any way through which i can update it to 3.5 version though yum. I have tried yum update firefox but it did not work and returns following messages Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit Setting up Update Process No Packages marked for Update I know that one way to update is download the latest Tar package and use it, but I want to totally remove my previous installation and use solely one package i.e. firefox 3.5.
So I was messing around trying to uninstall Nibbles and reinstall since I have an issue starting that game and something happened and removed the submenu under Games called "Logic", which had another whole list of games.
Is it possible to reinstall the games package or reinstall the update?I'm thinking more of the lines of a system restore or something so back 2 days from today.
I installed kde in ubuntu recently. For a while I didn't need it because I'd been using gnome, but gnome seems to be broken (if I boot up in it, the panel just doesn't show up. I think removing gnome and reinstalling it would be the best solution, but how do I do that? I tried apt-get remove ubuntu-desktop, but it told me that it wasn't installed, so not removed. Did I just get the package name wrong, or what?
I have followed instructions here to install apache + php5 + mysql
Apache 2 server is working. phpinfo.php shows php working. I've previously installed phpmyadmin .. but this time I've made some error in installing phpmyadmin. I would like to start afresh .. remove and reinstall. I looked in Synaptic Package Manager and phpmyadmin had a green marker .. showing installed. I tried "Mark for complete removal" But I can't purge phpmyadmin installation to try again. See screenshot.
I am running Ububtu Linux 10.04. When I attempt to install the latest version of the Adobe flashplayer (10.0.45.2ubuntu1), the Synaptic Package Manager (SPM) tries to remove flashplugin-nonfree and install flashplugin-installer. That fails with the message
E: flashplugin-nonfree: Package is in a very bad inconsistent state - you should reinstall it before attempting a removal. So, then I attempted to reinstall flashplugin-nonfree package but the SPM does not allow me to either install or remove the broken flashplugin-nonfree package. I tried the same things using the Ubuntu Software Center (USC) with the same failure.
$ aptitude show flashplugin-nonfree
Package: flashplugin-nonfree State: partially configured Automatically installed: no
I messed up with my Firefox installation so that I could install a newer version. But when I downloaded from Mozilla it was plain tarball with nothing but a bunch of binary files in it. How do I reinstall Firefox to the exact previous state from repos? And what if I don't wanna install that old 3.0 but the newer version?
I am running 10.10 on a Samsung n130. Occasionally my wifi adapter locks up, everything looks like it is connected but I cannot connect to the web. I have worked out that removing and re-installing the windows driver brings it back to life (a restart also works). What I was wondering is could it be possible to create a script that would carry out the removal and installation of the driver with one click of a button.
