I think I installed unicentra but cannot find it to run it?


Maybe it didn't install? My desire to learn and use Linux has been one heck of an adventure, but I keep trying. I never could figure out a way to use a wireless adapter so I just ran an ethernet cable. Now I installed unicentra, I think, but cannot find it anywhere to open it.

I'm completely new to Linux so any instructions should be given where I can understand them.

Thanks in advance.

Hi....

Welcome to the forum

Did you mean uniCenta? If so, please take a look at #3 (and possibly #4) here.

Also, for your wireless adapter, please open a terminal and post the results of this command...

Code:
lspci -nnk | grep -i net -A2
If you have a USB adapter, please use this command...

Code:
lsusb
This will give us the chip information (Lord willing,) which will enable us to point you in the right direction.

Regards...

If it's installed you should be able to run it from the terminal.
Try opening your terminal and type unicentra and hit Enter.

If this point of sale software is installed the terminal will launch it.
If not; it could be that it needs some dependencies (other libraries) installed in order to work.

Looks like a really nice program-

From terminal typed in unicentra and command not found.

As for wireless adapter I'll fight that later. I have ethernet run now so I'm content at this point.

Open your /etc/profile and look what is wrote after PATH=. This is the way where computer will be able to find anything that you type in command line. If there aren't such directories as /usr/local/bin, /usr/bin/, /bin and /usr/local/sbin, /usr/sbin, /sbin try to find it like
Code:
/usr/local/bin/unicentra
and so on.

the very MOST important thing is what NO ONE asked and you have not posted

HOW!!!!!

How did you try to install this ?
What did you do ?
what did you use ?
and how did you do it ?

and What did you download ?
from the web page version 4 is STILL IN TESTING
so was it version 4 or 3 ?

was it the SOURCE code you tried to build ?
http://sourceforge.net/projects/unic.../files/source/

OR

the prebuilt installer ?
http://sourceforge.net/projects/unic...eleases/linux/


with out you informing us as to what you did and used ,there is really NOTHING any one can do except make wild guesses.

I used this link and followed the instructions for Linux Mint. However, there is a difference because the instructions are for 3.81 but the download link is 3.92.1 or something like that. So I replaced 3.81 with whatever version I downloaded.

Is this what you saw before you downloaded the file?
Code:
unicentaopos-3.91.2-linux-x64-installer.run
The link in post # 10 doesn't work for me-
