Command after installing?


So I added repositories, and installed a package called Stellarium through YUM. Isnt their a command you are supposed to run afterwards to let the system know where everything is? Something with the word config in it?

When you install something with the packager manager, you are done.

Most distros now will put the command in the menus--it might take a re-start for it to show up.

You could also search in /usr to find the program.

Finally, please tell us what distro.

OK--curiosity got me. I installed, opened a terminal and typed "stellarium". Works fine, but I don't yet know what it is good for.

Its desktop planetarium software. Enter your LAT/LON numbers and get exact positions of planets, stars, nebulas, etc..

OK, so I typed in stellarium in the terminal and it ran, but immediatly exited with this:
