Clean Prism Install on Sidux

January 26, 2010 » Geek

Mozilla PrismPrism is a sandboxed web-app tool, essentially it is Firefox for one application at a time. It’s been a while since I played with it, so I’m taking another look.

This should work on any Debian based system really, but I did it on Sidux. Here’s how I installed the latest version on my machine.

# wget http://prism.mozilla.com/downloads/1.0b1/prism-1.0b1.en-US.linux-i686.tar.bz2
--2010-01-26 16:01:08--  http://prism.mozilla.com/downloads/1.0b1/prism-1.0b1.en-US.linux-i686.tar.bz2

# mv prism /opt/prism-1.0b1
# ln -s /opt/prism-1.0b1/prism /usr/bin

At that point it should be in your path and ready to invoke!
