what is SO HARD about actually being in the folder where the .run is

i am NOT planning on installing a "point of sale" cash register software so...

i just downloaded the .run
and saved it in a test folder in my Downloads folder
and ran

"sh ./unicentaopos-3.91.2-linux-x64-installer.run --help"

Code:
sh ./unicentaopos-3.91.2-linux-x64-installer.run --help


uniCenta oPOS 3.91.2
Usage:

 --help                                      Display the list of valid options

                                             Default: /home/johnvv/unicentaopos-3.91.2
the prefix option is there
you can set it to where ever you want


to install

use the default "prefix" OR set it to what YOU NEED IT TO BE



just MY impressions from the crappy website

i WOULD NOT use this software !!!
the site basically makes it clear
the pos software is there ONLY to SELL support

the "forum" is the source forge comments section

the over all look of things YELLS at me " STAY AWAY!!!! / DO NOT USE "

there is NOTHING about the site that instills me with confidence
and NOTHING that "sells me" on using it

just the opposite - it tells me to RUN AWAY

Ok.....you said that it's in the /opt directory.

Go to the /opt directory and open it.
Is there a folder that says unicenta?

If so open it and see if there are a handful of file that are associated with unicenta and if you see a README file or not?

I don't think it's installed for if it was it would of launched when you typed the name of the program in the terminal.

Look in your Synaptic Package Manager and type the name of the program in the search box and see if Synaptic can find it for you. If Synaptic Package Manager finds it ; it will also show you the dependencies the program requires and install it for you.

If SPM doesn't show it is unicenta in the Ubuntu Software Center?

IF your Software Center or Synaptic doesn't find it than you should heed JohnVV's word.
He said that there was NOTHING about the site that instilled him with confidence.

It's always best to find pkg's for your distribution from a trusted site or repository.

I've come across pkg's myself that were not right and I knew they weren't right so I didn't install them.

Out of curiosity I downloaded and unpacked the zip. No install was needed, just configure and start. Of course I didn't have the database it was looking for, but I can confirm it runs.

Just doesn't work for me.

It installs, I choose English or whatever language I want to install it in. It even says it is installed, but I cannot find it.

I'm VERY new to Linux. I can and have downloaded the .zip from sourceforge. I have no idea how to unpack it and I have no idea how to launch it. And again, actually from the .run I got it to install. Above I even listed the install directory. What do I do now?

I understand these things are easy for you guys, just like the things I know are easy for me. I need step by step dummy directions.

I just went back and clicked on the .run file and it started installing. I've installed it at least 10 times now. My original question and the question I'm still asking is how do I get to it to use it? In windows when you install a program it's puts it in program files. In Linux when you install a program where does it go??

Code:
cd /home/jason/unicentaopos-3.91.2
ls -l
cd will change directory, ls will list the contents. You can see help for commands using man. For instance
Code:
man ls
will open the manual page for ls. Use PgUp and PgDn to navigate. Use / to search.
