k3b


I downloaded ./configured and make and make installed k3b, no probs.
But how do I start it??
Tried k3b in a terminal, get "no such command" There is nothing in the menu.
A nice frontend that works would be nice, I've tried Gtoaster and CDwriter. Both don't work.

1.) Use the whereis command to find out wheree it was installed (like this):
Code:
samer@linux:~> whereis k3b
k3b: /opt/kde3/bin/k3b
samer@linux:~>
2.) After you figure out where it is, u can run it like this

Code:
samer@linux:~> /opt/kde3/bin/k3b &
You should gte seom output on your console, then the program will show up. Ignore the messages.

I hope this helps

Yes, it is....You can either compiled it again, with the apropiate flags to choose destination of the exec, or get the rmp for your distro, that makes it moooooooooooooore easy....

With the rpm it took me less than 30sec to install it, with the tarball....more than one hour, first for the deps, and then for the long make....

Which distro r u using?
As Hammet said, It might be easier to simply find the right RPM for your distro and install (or upgrade) that way. Sometimes that will make u avoid SOOO much compiling trouble!

Well I just downloaded the rpm for RH9, but need a break from my screen.
I don't like the rpm manager in RH9, it is not user friendly.
In a terminal, what do I do?
rpm -i /path/to/myfile.rpm??

well
to install do

rpm -ivh /path/to/rpmfile.rpm

to UPGRADE do

rpm --upgrade /path/to/rpmfile.rpm

(note: the upgrade is 2 - not just -, so its - - without spaces!)

If u seem to have problems with dependencies, u can FORCE an install of the repm (I HIGHLY RECOMMEND U DO NOT DO THIS), but for some programs shutting up rpm so it gives no dependency errors can be useful.

to force an install do

rpm -ivh --nodeps /path/to/rpmfile.rpm

also note: nodeps has 2 - (- -) before it.

Of course u need to be logged in as root to do an rpm install of anything

By The Way,
SuSE has a very nice RPM install option, as part of their YaST package. You might want to try SuSE out (I use it and love it)

There's also an apt-get debian style program called "apt-get" (also) that is text mode, but you have a GUI for that apt-get called synaptic....Is REALLY usefull.

Since you downloaded the RH9 rpm, I assume you are runnign Red Har 9 (or later), right?

I recommend you download, burn, and try the Live Eval CD of SuSE. If you like it well enough, you might want to give SuSE a spin

Bought SuSe 7.3 a year ago. So many things wouldn't work, I gave up on it.
RH9 works better, but also full of bugs.

I c. I bought 7.3 a while ago too. Things have improved a lot since 7.3,
Redhat remains to be quote-unquote the "standard" distro here in the United States.
I cannot stand redhat myself. I tried it and I tried mandrake (several releases) and I did not like them.
I would recommend SuSE to anyone who wishes to try it, but I appreciate the freedom to use whichever distro you like best.

Anyways, Let us know how the K3b thing goes for you
