unable to see files or gzip files in terminal


Even signing in as root.

Using an Aspire One with Linpus Linux.

I've downloaded linuxx86.tar.gz to set up the citrix client. But neither it nor the 3 rpm packages I've successfully installed are visible from the terminal. (Some of the files in my Videos directory are visible from the terminal, some aren't.)

ls -a returns . . .

gzip d linuxx86.tar.gz reports "no such file or directory."

Trying to move it to another directory ditto.

What simple thing am I missing?

Well... the file linuxx86.tar.gz is not where you expect it to stay. You can try to open a terminal and do a search using the find command:
Code:
find $HOME -name linuxx86.tar.gz
being logged in as the same user who performed the download.

I'm not sure what do you mean. If you installed some rpm, you can see if it has been successfully installed, by
Code:
rpm -q <package name>
where <package name> is the name of the rpm, without the version number, the architecture and the .rpm extension. If you want to list the files installed by the package:
Code:
rpm -ql <package-name>

Did you try "locate filename"?

Hmmm. Finally found it starting from root drive with

find / -name linuxx*

Next we'll see if we can unpack it.

Thanks,

Chip
