Unhappy How can a user access JBuilder9 installed as a root?


Hi! I've installed JBuilder 9 as a root on my RedHat 9 platform(in /usr/local/javaApp directory). I can access it as a root but as a user I cannot find the JBuilder 9 icon on my desktop. Can anyone please tell me how to access JB9 as a regular user?

Thanks.

Assuming that your RH9 is similar to my Mandrake 9.0, probably, the easiest thing would be for you to copy the shortcut from root's desktop to your user's desktop. Open a terminal window, su to root, and do

cp /root/Desktop/<Javaapp shortcut> /home/<user>/Desktop/<Javaapp shortcut>

chown <user>:<user's group> /home/<user>/Desktop/<Javaapp shortcut>

You're welcome, and it is good to know where similarities between the various distributions exist.
