[TUTORIAL] Graphics Pack on Ubuntu/Linux

Postby Frutol » Fri 02 Oct, 2009 13:40

Works for firefox-3.5 and firefox-3.0

Finally pulled this on out :D, been working on this for a long time and now it works

Open the terminal and paste:

Code: Select all

cd /usr/lib/firefox-3.5.3/defaults/preferences

change "firefox-3.5.3" to your firefox version.


Open the firefox.js with sudo:

Code: Select all

sudo gedit firefox.js


and now paste this:

Code: Select all

pref("capability.policy.policynames","local_astroempires");

pref("capability.policy.local_astroempires.sites","images.astroempires.com cdn.astroempires.com astroempires.com alpha.astroempires.com beta.astroempires.com ceti.astroempires.com delta.astroempires.com epsilon.astroempires.com fenix.astroempires.com gamma.astroempires.com");

pref("capability.policy.local_astroempires.checkloaduri.enabled","allAccess");

pref("capability.policy.local_astroempires.fileuri.strict_origin_policy","allAccess");


and restart firefox.

Now go to the account>display page of AE: display
and place the location of your files, in my case i used the Home folder

Code: Select all

css file: home/"user_name"/AE/Deepest_Space/style.css
Local path: home/"user_name"/AE/Deepest_Space/

Make sure you have "GRAPHICS PACK" selected on the Appearence box.

It should be working now

NOTES:
I'm using Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty Jackelope with the last kernel update, not sure if it works on other Distros
for other firefox versions please go to /usr/lib and seach for the folder with your version, the files should be the same.
I'm not a Linux Geek (yet) but i wil try to help you the best way i can.

Thanks
Frutol

I've had graphics packs working in Ubuntu for a while. I don't completely remember how I did it off the top of my head, but that looks right.

A couple of problems. I am using ubuntu (up to date as of 10min ago) and I am having a couple of problems. First, the command prompt line wouldnt work so I had to go diving through my system to find it (for me under ect/firefox-3.0/pref). The main problem though is that when I opened the .js file and pasted the code into it it told me I didnt have permission to edit it. Looking under permissions it says its owned by root and it wont let me change anything.

Any ideas?

try tgis on the terminal:

cd /ect/firefox-3.0/pref

the paste sudo gedit firefox.js

this works cause you are opening it with the Admin account, normal way won't work

Another path is:

Click Alt+F2 and paste "gksu nautillus"

then you can browse to /ect/firefox-3.0/pref and edit the file, cause you are browsing with root previleges (gksu)

hope it helps

1) is this still needed or relevant in 2018?
2) if so could someone post a screenshot or describe the benefits of this package, ie it isnt trivial to install so do i need it

No it’s absolutely not relevant. Please don’t go digging around in stuff this old.

Ooh looky... Forum Rules ... read them!
