I have a few questions regarding the installation of programs via RPM. I’ve installed programs using Kpackage (mostly) with little difficulty. What I am having a bit of a problem with is starting the newly installed program. Bear with me as I am a GUI usin’ Newbie…
When I am finished with the installation, I can not find an icon to launch the program. I try a long look on the K menu (I am using Mandrake 9.1 rc1 with KDE 3.1, and have used MDK 9.0) but usually end up looking in Kpackage to see where the program file was installed and then I make a Launcher on the desktop (Is that the right term for a Shortcut in Linux?) pointing to that particular program. Is there an easier way? Am I not looking I the right place?
Thanks for the help!!
