I've been reading up for awhile now and found some good stuff but also trailed a bit off topic which is easy to do on this site
My question is this:
how do i list all the programs i install from source?
I figured out how to do all this ./configure, make, and make install (and read the readmes), found out where they go, $PATH (/usr/bin and so forth) but if they are all scattered over the place, how do i remember what they are called or where they are.
I also found out that by typing the 1st 3 letters of a program found in your $PATH you can then complete it with tab. Nice.
That's the only reason i like kde, cause i can find things i want to run, but that's changing everyday....
