Hello,

I am facing the same problem when untaring a program. I finish installing and everything works fine. Except that I can't start the program by just typing it's name from any directory. What should I do to fix that problem??? I am using RedHat 7.0.

Thank you in advance

You need to make sure that the directory that the program installed to is in your path.
