Gkrellm


Well I installed it and I have no idea where it's located. How do I find it. I tired locate but i get the following:

[darkghost@localhost darkghost]$ locate
bash: locate: command not found

And when I try to use Find File under Tools in Konqueror, I still am unable to locate it. I really like the wat it looks. Couls some one please help me out.

BTW - I'm using Mandrake 8.2/KDE 3.0.1

make sure you have the locate packages install (and you really really must have already) with rpmdrake, and try using it as root. if it doesn't find it then try /usr/bin/locate as a full path name. if that finds it then it's most likely to be a screwed up path (check with "echo $PATH"). if that's screwed up then maybe you fiddled with the path in .bashrc or smoething?

oh and gkrellm *shuold* be /usr/bin/x11/gkrellm. also try using "which" and "whereis" to locate programs. all similar but do slightly different things

oh and don't use LimeWire.

Acid, once again I think you hit it. I thought it was installed. I saw the installed succesfully. But it wasn't. I checke dthat RPMpackager I think and it told me it could be installed, so I did. I checked afterwords and now it works. Sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet. Thanks again. Now about this locate thing...........
