Running Installed Packages (Firebird)
 
Hi,

I just installed the Firebird package from www.linuxpackages.net, but I don't know how to run the software. I am running Slackware 9.1 w/ Fluxbox.

Thanks,
Teoryn

you should be able to just type firebird on the command line. konsole in KDE and xterm in Gnome and other GUIs

I tryed running 'firebird' in the command line, but this did nothing (command not found).

what kind of package was it that you downloaded it? i downloaded the tar package and when i unpacked it it was ready to go, so i had to point it to the directory i unpacked it to. my command looks like this /usr/local/MozillaFirebird/MozillaFirebird

I downloaded the .tgz file.

Look in the directory where you installed it
e.g. it might be in /usr/local
If it is there, it'll be under the subdirectory MozillaFirebird
In that directory is the executable file called MozillaFirebird.
So, to lauch it enter the following absolute path:
/usr/local/MozillaFirebird/MozillaFirebird

The correct command is "MozillaFirebird" and you have to use the full path. Check your /home directory.
