Installing programs


Ok, I dont understand how programs install in Linux. I am using SuSE 9.2 and YaST to install RPMs. I just installed KNemo. I don't see how to use the program now. There are no icons and you can't man KNemo at the command line. Where should I go?

"extra" programs in Suse sometimes show up in the "other" categories of the menu. Check there.

Just wanted to post a similiar topic....

Instead of looking the icons i think it's better to actually understand where the installed packages, daemons and the rest of the applications go... is/are there any specific folder/s for them and do all the distros use the same one/s?

Usually the installed programs go under the /bin, /usr/bin or usr/share. The administration programs usually go in /sbin or /usr/sbin (this programs are owned by root).
And it's not distro specific.

To find out where it actually was installed, you can also type the command

whereis knemo

and it should give you the path to the executable object.

Hi,
Knemo is a KDED service and you have to activate it by running the Control Center, then KDE Components and finally Service Manager. Have a look in the Start-up Services window and you should find it there
If you click on 'default' when you are configuring Knemo it will automatically find all the network connections you have.

Hope this helped,

Weaner
