Unhappy Installed xmms, but cant find it!?


First off, I'm VERY new to Linux. (migrating from Windows) So far, there are lots of things I like about it, but just as many things I dont like about it. For one, I installed the newest version of xmms and can't run the program because I have no idea where it installed! I installed the RPM via command line. It didnt place a "shortcut" in the "start menu". (Don't know the Linux terms for these....only Windows!)

Help!

If you're using KDE desktop (default in Mandrake) press ctrl+f2 and type 'xmms' in. It should start. Then you can open the tool for menu edition (menudrake?) and add it (as command to run just type 'xmms').

roggae: No, I haven't seen your post before I posted (less tan 15 sec difference). I recommend you not to compile it from source - you have it in RPM form (much easier to install) on one of your installation cds. You can use the graphical tool as heema suggests or open a console (terminal, konsole, xterm programs) type
su
you'll be asked for root password, type it
urpmi xmms
It'll ask you for the cds it needs to install xmms.
