No program shortcut for installed applications?
 
I have just installed Suse 9.1 and have installed a couple of programs, one of which is Real VNC. It has been installed using Yast and all went well.

However, there has been no shortcuts created. Does anyone know how to start the VNC sever or the config file so I can get it running.

Just a folder location would do or terminal command to start the server or config file.

Thanks

rpm -ql `rpm -qa | grep -i vnc`



Cheers,
Tink

Create a bunch of "alias"es and put them into your
$HOME/.bashrc file. Learn about "alias" if needed, i.e.,

man alias

p.s. something like (warning: I may have syntact (sp?) wrong,
someone corrects me)

alias vncstart "rpm -ql `rpm -qa | grep -i vnc`"

I have run the command you gave me in a "Shell-Console", it seems to run some script and list all the file locations. What does this actually do? Should it create a shortcut anywhere?

I just want to configure the vnc server program somehow?

What I gave you will list all files that
have vnc in the name ... if you filter
that through grep bin as well, chances
are you know where the executable
lives, which you could then use to
create a shortcut/menu-entry.

There should be an '=' in there too, e.g.

alias ls="ls -lh --color"
