Re: How to Install Mozilla Browser

Go to http://www.hp.com/go/mozilla and download both the mozilla browser and the GTK libraries if you don't have them already. Then it's simply a matter of using swinstall against those downloaded depots.

Re: How to Install Mozilla Browser

Why would you want mozilla when you can have firefox?

Re: How to Install Mozilla Browser

Frnds, i want to download them on Unix terminal, not in my windows machine. How can i download via the link that u provided? What is that command?

For EG: In Linux we have YUM to download files n install.

Re: How to Install Mozilla Browser

You mean you have no browser at all available on your unix machine? Usually at the very least Netscape is installed. Look under /opt and see if you don't have a netscape, mozilla or firefox directory.

Re: How to Install Mozilla Browser

Alternatively you can download the mozilla or firefox install files on your windows or linux browser and ftp the downloaded file(s) to your HP-UX server. You then use swinstall to install the downloaded files.
I do not reply to forumers who 1) consistently don't assign points, 2) ask for step-by-step instructions for a topic but appear to have no IT experience and make no effort to learn. Some exceptions for newcomers and special topics.

Re: How to Install Mozilla Browser

Then you will need to follow the advice from TTR: download on your windows machine and ftp to your unix box.

Re: How to Install Mozilla Browser

Hi:

I agree with everything that has been said thus far. You really need FireFox. You really need to download to your PC with its browser and then FTP the depot to your UNIX box for installation.

You need the GTK libraries as you found. Get everything you need here:

Re: How to Install Mozilla Browser

I checked in SAM -> SD-UX. Under Installed software i can see Firefox and GTK, so i have the software install, but i cant use the BROWSER. I need your help in configuring the browser.
Also i have attached the screen-shot.

>Under Installed software I can see Firefox and GTK,

I would toss that (1.5) as obsolete. The latest is 2.0.0.19.02.

Have you set up your DISPLAY variable?

Re: How to Install Mozilla Browser

So you need a XServer on that PC, e.g. XMing.

Start this application on your PC, then connect to the server,

> putty -X

Hope this helps!

Re: How to Install Mozilla Browser

You need a XServer running on your PC in order to display the X windows or any GUI application.

Hope this helps!

Re: How to Install Mozilla Browser

I use RSA Authentication Private key to login to HPUX box. Is there any X-Server which supports that?

Re: How to Install Mozilla Browser

You should first read some lines in order to understand what a XServer does.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X-server#Design

Did you try with putty and xming?

Hope this helps!

Re: How to Install Mozilla Browser

hi,
>>I use RSA Authentication Private key to login to HPUX box.

No issue while connect through any x-windows software you need to do the same as u r doing for putty login.

you need to give your username and passwd

Re: How to Install Mozilla Browser

I don't use password to login to my HPUX, instead i user RSA Private key file. Xming is not helpful for RSA authentication. As of now i can login only via Putty.

Re: How to Install Mozilla Browser

DID you do some RTFM???

You connect only via putty, xming runs on your PC.

Start xming.
connect via putty

putty -X

Hope this helps!
