Question How do I know if a program was installed correctly?


I am trying to install a file called ClanLib.
ClanLib needs to have Hermes library installed to function.
I have installed Hermes, and the make install ran without errors, now when I try to ./configure the ClanLib it claims that I do not have a properly installed Heremes.

How do i fix this problem?

./configure is done before make and make install
You can tell if a program works usually by trying to RUN the program.
Or you can try typing out the first few letters of the program and then using tab completion to see if its in your path.

P.S. Your other post that you made could have accompanied this one ... no need to do more than one. Also, I know that you wont like this ... but try using the search button first before making a new post. Linux is about finding answers for yourself, then if things dont work out that way, you have plenty of community members to help you out.

Hermes is a library. I cannot run a library.
I was hoping for a command that would verify an installation.

find / -name "hermes*" -print 2>/dev/null
If that shows up in a path that sounds like a library path ie */lib/
then u probably got it in there. If there were no errors I dont see why you'd doubt the installation.
You might want to run ldconfig after adding any libraries.
