Find File broken, need search utility, where does WineX install, KDE file roller?
 
Three basic questions. I am running Mandrake 10 official.

1). My file finder utility in KDE does not work. It freezes up most of the time I try to use it even when I am just browsing /home/user for a file :P Is there another utility I can use, hopefully one on the Mandrake package CDs.

2). Anyone who has used WineX 4.0 or cedega, where does the RPM install it? I checked the install instruction and notes and it does not tell you where it creates the directory. Kind of hard to load a game into the directory when I have no idea where it is.

3). What is KDE's equivalent of file roller. I installed file roller to unzip files. But I would like to install KDE's version so it is integrated into the desktop so I dont have to "fire up" file roller and then point it to the archieve.

Thanks

afaik Winex is installed in you /home directory...but it is a 'hidden folder' so you have to 'show all files' to see it...

You can use a console search tool....become root and issue 'updatedb' wait for the database to build and the try something like
whereis (filename)

I think the rpm of winex installs in the bowels on /usr/bin somewhere, but it doesn't matter. You can still install stuff with the usual cedega /mnt/cdrom/setup,exe or whatever... You might need to edit the wine setup wherever that is... But sure, the windows fake drive will probably be in /home/user somewhere...

I don't know, I took the easy way this time and use point2play :)

Thanks for the replies. Sure enough, when I went to install D2 suddently transgaming appeared in my home\user folder :P

Yes console searches are possible but a pain if you dont remember all the right syntax. So I would much rather have a gui search tool. Any suggestions? For KDE 3.2 that is. And what is the pesky archieve utility for KDE called. In one install I had it. But this time I dont. I must have not checked the appropriate box that contained that utility :P I would sure like to install it, using file roller is bad but it is not as convenient as it being integrated into your panels.

The KDE archive utility is called "ARK"

yeah, I found that the kde 'find' utility screws up alot..I thought it was just something with my install, but I guess not...

Thanks, I can install ark :)
