Flock is not yet packaged for any Linux distribution (with the notable exception of Ultima Linux).
This guide should work for most distributions of Linux
Before you install Flock on Linux, please note:
* The Flock binaries are only for GNU/Linux on x86
* libstdc++5 is required for Flock 1.x
* libstdc++6 is required for Flock 2.x
Installing Flock on Linux is relatively easy. First, download the latest version of Flock and save it to your home folder.
Open up a terminal window (not as root) and enter the following:
tar -C /home/yourusername -xzvf flock-*.linux-i686.tar.gz
Make sure you change the actual filename to match the version you have downloaded. This command extracts the contents of the package to your home folder
Now that you have done that, we need a desktop entry:
You can use your preferred text editor, gedit is being used simply for example.
Enter the following in to the new file:
Comment=Flock Web Browser
GenericName=Flock Web Browser
GenericName[en_US]=Flock Web Browser
This creates a desktop shortcut to run Flock in your home folder. Feel free to drag it on to your panel or desktop to make it more convenient to access.
