run executable files


I'm new to slackware and I was wondering how I can execute files after the whole ./configure,make, make install. I check the usr/local/bin but I can't execute those files. Specifically I downloaded GDK+ and GDK+ Gnutella Network and I extracted the files and did the install process in the console.

$ cd /usr/local/bin
$ ./FILE_NAME_TO_BE_EXECUTED

what do you mean?

maybe you should be root to sun this, so type su and switch to root and execute the file again.

well seeing as the message says...

i don't quite think that's what you want to do!

so log in as a normal user and run "gtk-gnutella". btw you didnt' say what distro you are using, if it's RPM based like redhat or mandrake you shouldn't have compiled those librarues yourself, as they are probably already on your system in a different form and so could easily mess your system up completely.
