Talking Redhad 8.0 - xmms - mozilla


Whenever I try to find applications, I have a hard time trying to find where they are. For example, when I go to shoutcast.com's music links, It asks me for the application to use in order to open the file.

I know that I have xmms on the system because it was installed when I set up Redhat 8.0. But I can't find it anywhere!

Can anyone help?

Thanks so much!

you don't need to "find" it, it will be on your path already, so just type in "xmms". i assume you're aware or RM80's xmms/mp3 issues? check http://xmms.org if you've not found out yet.

In general you can use the commands

whereis

... and ...

which

to find out the location of a file. This should become less of an issue as Galeon matures, which has proper mime-db integration.

Woohoo!!!! It worked!

Thank you so much!

This is my first real foray into Linux and so far, it's been a lot of fun, once I got past the frustration of not knowing the commands. One thing I find is that it's much easier to customize your file structure in Linux - much easier than windows!
