How to use the new installed software?


For example, when I install the bit torrent client Azureus it doesn't show up in the Internet Applications. There's no a command like "azureus" to launch it from the terminal. When I searched for it I found 2 folders full of unknown files for me. I couldn't start one. I guess you all can help me
10x!

It helps to know which Linus distro you are using. If it is Fedora, for example, you probably installed an RPM, in which case you could run rpm -ql Azureus which will tell you which files were installed.

You could also try the man pages (manual): man Azureus

I'm using Suse 10.2.
Is it the same?

Well, the man pages should exist with Suse, so try:

man Azureus

or

man azureus

Azereus is a java program. You might want to look for its home page for instructions. Most packages will contain some documentation in /usr/share/doc/packages/<package-name>/ for SuSE or /usr/share/doc/<package-name>-<version>/ for Fedora.

To show the documents that a package supplies you could try "rpm -qd"
For example for the gimp program:
Code:
rpm -qd gimp
/usr/share/doc/gimp-2.2.17/AUTHORS
/usr/share/doc/gimp-2.2.17/COPYING
/usr/share/doc/gimp-2.2.17/ChangeLog
/usr/share/doc/gimp-2.2.17/NEWS
/usr/share/doc/gimp-2.2.17/README
/usr/share/doc/gimp-2.2.17/README.i18n
/usr/share/doc/gimp-2.2.17/README.win32
/usr/share/doc/gimp-2.2.17/Wilber.svg
/usr/share/doc/gimp-2.2.17/Wilber.xcf.gz
/usr/share/doc/gimp-2.2.17/Wilber.xcf.gz.README
/usr/share/doc/gimp-2.2.17/Wilber_Construction_Kit.xcf.gz
/usr/share/doc/gimp-2.2.17/keybindings.txt
/usr/share/doc/gimp-2.2.17/quick_reference.ps
/usr/share/man/man1/gimp-2.2.1.gz
/usr/share/man/man1/gimp-remote-2.2.1.gz
/usr/share/man/man1/gimp-remote.1.gz
/usr/share/man/man1/gimp.1.gz
/usr/share/man/man1/gimptool-2.0.1.gz
/usr/share/man/man1/gimptool.1.gz
/usr/share/man/man5/gimprc-2.2.5.gz
/usr/share/man/man5/gimprc.5.gz
There isn't an Azereus package in the openSuSE 10.2 distribution. Did you download a package from the packman repository? The problem with not showing up on the menu could be that you downloaded a package for another distro.
