I can't find my downloads.


Hello,

I successfully downloaded both cinelerra and Kino but neither of them runs at all. I want to run them in command prompt and see if an error pops up but I can't find where they got installed to. How do I find where they got put?

Umm...downloaded how? Wget, or browser? If browser, which one. Also, which Linux distribution? Linux may generally either use the ext2 or ext3 filesystem, but its the OS that determines where the files are placed. Ubuntu is notorious for installing in locations it wants rather then where the standard installation places the files.

Have you tried opening a terminal and typing "kino"?

Try 'less <package.rpm>' to get a list with all files
in the rpm package. Or 'lesspipe.sh <package.rpm>'
