Ubuntu Firefox 2 in Wine

2012-11-02  Source: Original Site  Category:Ubuntu  Views:0 


I installed Firefox 1.5 in Wine some time ago and everything worked fine. Recently I tried to do an upgrade from 1.5 to 2.0 in Wine but couldn't. Firefox 1.5 notifies me that there are no updates available.

I also tried downloading the v2.0 and installing it the same way I did with 1.5, but then I keep getting a message that I do not have enough hard drive space (which is not true). See attached file.

Anyone installed Firefox 2.0 in Wine?
