How To Downgrade To Firefox 2 In Ubuntu Hardy

Firefox in Ubuntu Hardy is a love-hate thing; many people love the Firefox 3.0b that comes default in the distro, while others feel that the beta version is just not ready yet.  While both sides make valid points to support their argument, I have to side with the latter. Firefox 3.0b does not have anywhere near the available themes and addons available as its predecessor, and that along with a minor issue with flash caused me to "downgrade" to Firefox 2.  If you're wondering how to downgrade your Firefox browser to an earlier version in Ubuntu, here's how: First of all, open up Synaptic and check the following for removal: firefox-3.0 firefox-3.0-gnome-support and firefox-dev.  Then check the following packages for installation: firefox-2 and firefox-2-gnome-support.  Doing this will remove the default version of Firefox in Ubuntu and install the older version. There is just one more thing you will need to do, and that is to remove your former Firefox profile.  If you do not remove this profile, you will be unable to install any addons or themes.  The command line proves fastest to accomplish this.  Just enter the following command to remove the residual profile:

New Joomla 1.5 Tutorial

Hi, I have write a new Joomla 1.5 tutorial.   I plan to make this tutorial as series, so I will help you till your website up and running (offcourse, if you plan it)    This 1st series tutorial dicuss about, complete install process of joomla 1.5 with screenshot.    Here is the excerpt I take from middle part of tutorial:   Second step is to check your web server requirements that meet joomla. If you see the green color words written, that mean you pass for the requirements. Otherwise, red color mean the requirements must be corrected before we go to next step. For example, if your register globals on your php requirement is red (on), open your php.ini configuration file and toggle it to off. Third step is to accept the joomla aggrement and license. If you dont agree, please close your browser and dont install joomla.
