KPackage/GnomeRPM


I have to no avail to use KPackage. I have Kdeadmin installed, and when I cd to the directory, the KPackage directory is there. Yet, I can't seem to find it anywhere. I have tried typing "kpackage" in the command terminal, nothing. I have read that this is easier than trying to use the command terminal, although I have had relative success with it. I have searched the threads, can't find any advice on how to get kpackage working. It is not in the system tools folder, or anywhere else.

Thanks

well according to my system it's installed in /usr/bin by deafult, just try running /usr/bin/kpackage in a terminal... if it doesn't work something must've stopped it installed properly.

but installing rom a command line is pretty easy really. check "man rpm" for details.

Well, it's installed in /home/myname/usr/local. and the command "kpackage" does not work. Guess i'll have to reinstall, or just forget it. Thanks for the answer.

ho on earth did you get it installed there? that command certainly won't be on your path by default... try installing it again as root (after removing the old one)

Okay, so I kind of messed up. I first downloaded it, then moved it to the /usr/local directory, then installed it.

So, after your direction, I deleted it, had it downloaded again, put in /home/Ray directory. Then, in a command terminal, I ran (as root) tar xvfj (it is tar.bz2 file) to open it. it installed a directory of kdeadmin in the /home/Ray directory, with all the subdirectories. I tried "./configure" no go. I cd to Kpackage directory, same thing. I tried "kpackage" nothing again.
I'll bet you are just about pulling your hair out with these newbies. i'll keep working with it, but again, i am having little trouble using rpm or tar in a command terminal. I was having problems before, came to this site, and discovered I did not have gcc compiler installed. Did that, and what do y'know, rpm works.

Thanks so much for your help.
