you dont need to know where it is to execute it... thats a stupid
windows problem

to execute it, just run the binary name,
'mldonkey' i think.

Make it easy, hit ALT+F2 and type in mldonkey and you should be set. Do this as user and not root though.

Thanks I have found where it has been installed. But one thing that is driving nuts is that some of the files (quite a list) were installed into my home directory. Is there anyway that I can move these files without causing the program to stop? Thanks

Hi

Im not to sure how you installed this pkg but if you used the pkgtool in slack , you can use it to uninstall the pkg. Otherwise , i think you are in for quite an indepth search (ie have to find what files were installed and remove them!) although , if you installed it as a local user then it probabaly never went anywhere that it wasnt allowed to go.

I myself am new to installing files and also have the question of "Now where in this directory can i copy these files to?" , i guess this happens to all of us that try keep a little discipline over what goes where. all I can suggest is for you to add a /bin directory to your home directory and then add that directory to your PATH env variable or else add a world readable directory under /user/share and do the above, thus giving everyone access.

Cheers.
