How do I start a program from the shell after it has been installed?
Just type gaim
. It should have put an icon in your main menu (normally under the internet
section). Gaim is now called Pidgin
, chances are you have installed an old
version. You can get the latest for your distro here: http://www.pidgin.im/download/
