Uninstalled Firefox from Synaptic, now cannot re-install (not found)

Post by mingle » Mon Jul 22, 2019 11:05 pm

Hi Guys,

This is puzzling me - I did a clean install of Linux Mint 19.1 64-bit xfce and removed most of the install applications (including Firefox), using Synaptic.

I'd now like to reinstall, but when I go into Synaptic (or the Software Manager), Firefox is nowhere to be found.

Any idea why this would be and how can I get it back?

Cheers,

Mike.

If you run this command, does Firefox return to Synaptic? If so, install it from there:

Code: Select all

 sudo apt update 
If not, you can install it with:

Code: Select all

 sudo apt install firefox
