Install pale moon browser in P10 (Solved)
« on: May 19, 2019, 02:13:23 am »
Pale Moon is my favorite browser. I have installed it in P8 and P9, but either I forgot how or the method has changed. How do I install it in P10?

Instructions can be found here:

http://linux.palemoon.org/

Make sure you select "Ubuntu" as your OS. Basically, it just includes adding a PPA to your system and installing it like any other software.

There are several sets of instructions under "Ubuntu". Which do I use? I tried the instructions under "Ubuntu 18.04" but my laptop will not update the repository.

18.04 is the right base for Peppermint 10. Here is the page with links to .deb packages if the repo isn't working.
