I'd like to HELP Clem and Linux Mint

Postby ostheo on Wed Feb 27, 2008 5:54 am


I've read Clem's blog about Linux Mint generating some funds from Google search and thus the new tweaked version of Firefox. It includes tweaks for M$ users who would like to help Linux Mint generate more income. As of now I am using XP since Daryna KDE CE isn't out yet. So I would like to ask assistance on how to do the tweaks for M$. Below are the tweaks he wrote:

you can replace google.xml in program-files, mozilla, searchplugins (not sure of the exact location in Windows) with /usr/share/firefox/searchplugins/google.xml and add /usr/share/firefox/searchplugins/google_image.xml in the same place. Thanks :).

Please elaborate this in a way newbies can understand. Thanks! :D

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

The location is (I think - I've tweaked my system so I share profiles between XP and Mint, but I almost never use XP any more)
/Documents and Settings/User_name/Application Data/Mozilla/Firefox/Profiles/Random_Something.default/searchplugins
The / are \ in Windows
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
