I downloaded Limewire and now I can't seem to run it correctly, could someone please give me the command line so I can run it in "run programs"? Linux is a bit different.. I have to run everything, which I don't mind but Limewire didn't give me instructions on what to run. So I have a file sitting in my home folder. Help please, thank you.
Ah, I'm just going to rename the subject.
Also - how do I get files/downloads working anyway if they don't give me instructions first? I just downloaded Yahoo! Messenger with great instructions on how to run its program, yet why doesn't everyone do that? I want Limewire on, but I don't know how to get it on. If I click the download it'll go into this page long shell coding ... kind of weird.
Um ... I know this is probably a highly newbish question for you all, but I do need an answer quickly please. I have to log off of Linux for the rest of the night here soon because I still have a lot of homework, and I can't have any distractions or I won't pass ... again.
Otherwise I wouldn't be begging for a quick reply.
Youll have to learn the command line to install some stuff.
It depends on what kind of compressed file you downloaded, like .tar, .tar.gz, .tar.bz etc....
Open up a console, Most of the time I uncompress the type of compressed download and then change directory into the uncompressed directory and then use a text program to read the INSTALL and README files to get help if I need it. Its easiest to use cat programname | less.
Then you do:
If youve made it that far then go ahead and try to run the program in a terminal with its name, If it doesnt run change into /usr/bin or /usr/local/bin to see if the program executable is there.
Check out the links in my signature, Theres some good info.
AH!! I tried to do what you said but when I entered in my password it said "You are not in the sudo's folder (or something like that) this incident will be reported"
..Am I in trouble? What do they mean by "reporting" me..?
I just entered this into the Konsole, that's all.
And yes I did enter in limewire to the run but it couldn't find anything. limewirelinux.bin is sitting in my Home and I don't know what to do with it. How do I run this correctly (in newb terms please)
