well it worked to a degree but at the end it did not work
I have been looking around the net for a installer but to no avail perhaps someone here would know of on (it seems that I have to have some kind of installer this is a program that installs the files i guess. any way if any one knows of one plz tell me
also when installing it it ask me this
Please enter the mountpoint for the first drive (default is /)
ok I have windows on my pc 2 hd first has xp then the second drive has debian also is this the same thing like
when loged in as root before / I have cwolf this is somtihg that debian told me to put in it was debian but I wanted somthing shorter should I here at this question put cwolf/ or hdb1/ ect
To install this theme do the following three steps:
1) Download the package
2) Decompress the package inside your $HOME directory (IMPORTANT! It must be in your $HOME directory if you do not want to do additional editing of the config files):
tar -jxvf Borealis_superkaramba-VERSION.tar.bz2
3) Run the installer and follow the instructions:
That should be it!
ok form what #3 (in green) says I have to run a installer OK has any one seen an installer or know what it is talikng about
remember after #3 it says cd Karamba/Borealis which means I have just extracted it so I as of yet have not left the main folder where I down loaded the tar.bz2 file to it to. any ideas?
The installer normally is the 'install.sh' file. You can run it with the command 'sh install.sh' or './install.sh'. So what you're doing is right. It's simply not clear in which directory you have to put it.
well, it's supposed to be in home, but should it be in /home/usrname/ ?
I'm guessing since it says $HOME.. But I'm far from an expert, actually I barely scrape the surface of newbie.. *sob*
Well, according to the instructions it shouldn't be to much of a problem.. *tries it* well, $HOME is obviously /home/usrname *is ashamed of self* so.. the install dir should be /home/usrname/Karamba/Borealis unless... You should run the installer from $HOME, which would be sh /Karamba/Borealis/install.sh *tries that aswell*
Well, I have the same problem as you it seems..
Silly question, I know, but did you try google yet?
