Multipul Mandrake Issues


UGH!!! Huge headaches now. I installed Firefox and Thunderbird the only problem Is i do not know how to make shortcuts to it, I dont know where its located AND when i go into properties it comes with a 1 inch by 1 inch window that is blank. I do not know how to launch it in the terminal program. And my main issue is the short cuts on the taskbar...

Also mandrake dosnt have my printer driver i have a lexmark Z615

Basically how do you mkae shortcuts on the task bar. how do you find where the programs are installed and how do you lauch them in terminal

Did you install Thunderbird and Firefox from Mandrake rpms? If you did, they should automatically appear in the menu. If you used any other method of installation, then you have to use "menudrake" and make entries for Thunderbird and Firefox. As for your printer problem, run 2printerdrake" and hopefully it will sort out your problem for you. printerdrake will need to be run as root by doing something like
$kdesu printerdrake
or running the Mandrake Control Center (drakconf).
