What is the "official" way to launch Pale Moon

Post by Walter Dnes » 2015-12-04, 04:00

I've built it and installed it in directory ~/pm and it works. There appear to be 4 ways of launching it...
  • pm/palemoon
    pm/palemoon-bin
    pm/run-mozilla.sh pm/palemoon
    pm/run-mozilla.sh pm/palemoon-bin
Is there any preference; e.g. is any of the 4 options more robust than the others?
There's a right way
There's a wrong way
And then there's my way

see bug #658850, they are duplicates. But I don't know what run-mozilla.sh does.

I launch it (*) with "netscape" :mrgreen:
lucio 1 > which netscape
netscape: aliased to /usr/bin/palemoon $WWW_HOME &


(*) if I inadvertently type control-Q to quit it, actually it is started by fvwm :D
+ "I" Test (Init) Exec exec /usr/bin/palemoon $WWW_HOME

palemoon and palemoon-bin are the same file; whereas run-mozilla.sh is a shell script that is used to invoke Pale Moon with debugging options. At least that is the stated purpose of the script, but I haven't used it.

Thanks for the replies. I'll go with "~/pm/palemoon" because it's the least amount of typing, and I'm lazy.
