I installed Ephiphany into my Xubuntu. Can't find it. Where is it? Thanks.


I installed Epiphany web browser into my Xubuntu. Cannot find Epiphany. Thanks. I believe I'm using XFCE4. I know Ephiphany is for Gnome. Is that the issue?

You can use the "whereis" command. Epiphany is probably in /usr/bin.

Here's the output on my Debian system:

Code:
# whereis epiphany
epiphany: /usr/bin/epiphany /usr/share/man/man1/epiphany.1.gz
It's designed to find binaries, as opposed to "locate," which finds everything related to the search string. You can compare their man files.

Thanks. and a question:

Yes epiphany-browser is in usr/bin (856.0 kB executable) ; also there is a script file named epiphany.

Question: how can I get Epiphany-Browser to be listed among the links in "Internet", in the list that appears when I click the mouse-head icon at the very top left of the xfce page in Xubuntu?

Thanks, more questions re Flash, Terminal

1) I found alacarte, which did put "epiphany-browser" into the "Internet" menu, at the bottom, and that menu-entry did launch Epiphany.
2) I then used alacarte to move the entry to the top of the menu list, and now, it no longer launches Epiphany. I have to go to usr/bin
3) Am having trouble installing Flash. Epiphany doesn't include Flash and therefore Epiphany won't play videos at Youtube. Any suggestions? I'll give more details later.
4) Re: UXTerm: I discovered "Ctrl + Hold Right Click" to display a list of fonts. I like "Huge".
5) Installed gnome-terminal and it looks to offer more features than UXTerm.

1. cool
2.In Ubuntu, if you are talking about the sidebar, you should be able to drag to top.
3.For me flash never worked with epiphany. I use firefox or chrome.
4 Don't make fonts too big atleast on Desktop. It will take everything off the screen including Power Button.

Re fonts

in UXTerm, I need a bigger font than the one provided, and Ctrl+Hold_Right_Click gives me a list of options re: font and terminal size. The "Huge" font choice works; it stays within the terminal. Thanks for your help.

What do you think of gnome-terminal? I gather it's kind of a gui that links to a terminal in the background. It's not really a terminal, but it works with a hidden terminal and accesses the system that way.

Technically, gnome-terminal (and other similar programs) are called "terminal emulators," because they interface to the terminal through the window manager or desktop environment. For purposes of day-to-usage, the distinction doesn't matter.

Here's a good definition of "terminal emulator."

Gnome-terminal is nice program.

I tend to prefer Konsole, but that's strictly a matter of taste, not of any difference in functionality. I'm not a big fan of the older ones, such as xterm and rxvt, because I like ability to copy from and paste into the terminal that the newer ones provide.
