Default Re: Ubuntu 5.10: upgrading the included firefox and flash player

Looks like either dependencies are not being met, or you could possibly try the Alternate Install CD or try Xubuntu. I use KPackage, Synaptic usually, and the terminal (Linux Console, Root Shell) on occasion to install programs on our KDE system (PCLOS2008 MiniMe). For Firefox upgrades I just simply deleted the old folder containing the 3.04version and replaced it with the new 3.05 after extracting, that method has been working well with upgrades since installing 3.0 with Synaptic.
